Default A few questions

Hello :)
I'm new and I'll most likely pick up my hedgie somewhere along next week, and before I do that I have a few questions I hope you guys can help me with :)

1. I've read that it's best to take the hedgie out and let him sleep on your lap/stomach while reading, watching TV etc. for bonding. Do I take him out during the day and thus wake him? Or do I wait until he's awake and then take him out and let him sleep on me? But does he even sleep then? (I mean, he just woke up..)

2. I've also read that they need about 12 to 14 hours of light. Do I need to keep a lamp near them or does daylight and normal room light suffice?

3. How necessary is a wheel really? I'd much rather let him roam around my room all evening than letting him run in a wheel. But of course I'll get one if it's really vital.

4. Thoughts on dried insects?

Thanks in advance! :D
