Default sleeping

ok i no im asking alot of questions you all probably think im the worst owner ever really i just wanna make sure everythings ok with oreo i have never had a hedgie before now.

is it normal for hedgehogs to sleep on their side? oreo sleeps spread out on his side with his head proped up against the wall in the corner of his bed. sometimes he sleeps curled up, but not often.

Yup...perfectly normal...Snarf sleeps on his side...stomach...even on his back, semi-curled when I'm holding him or he's on my lap. Sometimes their legs stick out all weird, too...normal.

The only thing to watch for is if he sleeps really stretched out on his stomach...splayed out? it could mean he's too hot. Some may do this on their owner's chest/stomach and that's fine: hedgie is very content. But if you notice him doing the 'splaying' thing in the middle of his cage, say, double-check the temp: he could be over heated.

Questions are good! And actually indicate a good owner!
