yay picture!!! so cuteee x)

Sunlight doesn't work as light because as the days get shorter the hedgehog thinks winter is coming and try's to hibernate(hibernation very bad). That's why u need a pretty exact lights go on at 6am or 8am off at 6pm or 8pm or whatever works for u.
As saId above becareful of drafts. Expecially in the summer it's going to be freezing by her cage when that ac kicks in.. Which also means hibernation :/
