Default How long until the hibernation process begins?


While I was at work today, our electricity went out, meaning my hedgie was left in the cold for at least a couple hours. Her thermostat on her habitat read 61.4 F when I got home. She is responsive, but will absolutely not uncurl from her ball. She is normally very happy and active at this time of night. How can I tell if she is just grumpy or if she is starting to hibernate?

Sounds like she is starting to hibernate it can happen very fast.
Put her up your top on your skin to get your body heat and warm her up that way
If you have a thin top you can actually do it over your top if you more confortable with it that way just put a fleece blanket over the top of her.
