Default Hedgie Newbie Heater Help!

Hi! I am getting a hedgehog in a couple of weeks, and in the winter (I know I have a while ) the room temperature gets to be in middle 60s. I am pretty sure that the place I am living does not allow space heaters but I have heard of heaters that you can place underneath the bedding. Any information will be greatly appreciated! Thanks

The heating pad can't be used alone, though...The air itself needs to be warm, having the bottom of the cage be warm won't be enough. If you can't use space heaters, you might want to check into getting a ceramic heat emitter.
