Default Hedgehog is LAZY

So Snooki she just likes to sleep all day and then when I take her out towards night she just wants to cuddle and eat. I have a wheel for her but she doesn’t use it . I tried everything and I mean everything. The temperature of her cage is normally around 70-75. I’ve cut her nails when they needed it. I’ve put her in there and help my hand over the opening to make sure she didn’t run out but she just sat against my hand. Then at night I put some flour I’ve heard and there is no movement at night. Could it just be that she is a lazy hedgehog?

How old is she? Babies tend to sleep a lot. Also, you might want to tighten up the temperature variance you've got going on. 70 is too low. I wouldn't let it go below 72, but there should only be a difference of a couple of degrees either direction from your target temperature. 75 is a good place to start. Does she have a light schedule?

She’s 5 months. Yes, I Turn off the lights during the day and cover the area with a blanket, then at night I take of the blanket and let all the natural light that can get in show.

You need to have a lighting schedule of 12-14 hours daily. You may use lamps, desk lamps, ceiling lamps, or any other kind of artificial light. Sunlight is not sufficient. At night time it must be completely dark, as hedgehogs are nocturnal creatures and come out to play during night time.
