Default Re: Heating Pad or Ceramic Heater?

So far I like it. I've only been using it about 24 hrs, but it was very easy to set up (big plus for me ). I only had two to choose from, this one and the other one that had no specific temperatures, just low medium and high. It was absolutely worth the little extra money for a more precise reading.

Exclamation Hedgie Environment - How to Heat?

I, too, have a wire cage from Exotic Nutrition for my new hedgie (haven't gotten the animal yet but will have him home on the 19th). My roommate generally keeps the house at 74F. I know that winter is coming so I anticipate the use of a heater even with a warm ambient temperature.

Now, my cage set up includes wood foraging toys, silk plants, and fleece bedding - all things that are quite flammable. I certainly do not want to bring harm to my new little buddy, is a heat emitter that safe with these materials?

Yes, it'll still be safe - if the heat were enough to cause any of those things to catch on fire or anything like that, it'd also be cooking your hedgehog. Set on top of the wire cage, there's no chance it'll fall into the cage, and if you're worried about it being knocked off, the Fluker's clamp lamps have holes in the edge of the lamp where you could put a ziptie or wire through & secure it to the cage.

Also, just so you know for future posts, it's usually better to start your own topic rather than bring up an old thread.
