Default Sleeping "under" wheel

Luckily for me i took your advice and bought her a much better wheel. I managed to return the exercise ball, and the old wheel. Now that Ive put in the new wheel into her cage, she loves it, she uses it every night as i find a very dirty wheel. YAH good news. HOWEVER she loves it SO much that she manages to carve through the shavings to get underneath the wheel base and manages to either sleep there or move the wheel around... haha Is this safe? I always end up taking it out of the cage in the early morning in fear that it'll injure her in some way. Please let me know what your opinion is. Thank you.

What kind of wheel is it. If it's a comfort wheel she might be able tip it. Try attaching it to the side of the cage with zip ties. or twist ties or something.

My mice do that when I leave it in their cage, they have never been able to take it apart. Quigley has never tried to do it with his. I don't really think you hedgehog could get hurt from doing it. If she tips it enough that the wheel part comes off the base it won't land on her because she'll be on the other side. However I don't think she could tip it enough to make it fall apart. As long as you check on her in the morning and make sure she's not stuck I'm sure she's fine.

My hedgie does the exact same thing! She doesn't sleep in her house she sleeps under her cage liner under her flying saucer wheel which she pushes around to make room. I have been trying to figure out how to get her to sleep in her house for so long now!

My new little girl sleeps no where but in her wheel. I'm like CMON! Igloo with a nice warm sleeping bag, box full of fleece, and you pick in the Moving plastic wheel?

I bribed my hedgie to sleep in her pigloo...
- the desk light I have shines primarily on the side of the cage where the wheel is
- the pigloo has lots of fleece to let her hide and bury away
- treats are sometimes found in among the fleece

If you have shavings, it will be harder because I've found a hedgie I sat to move the bedding around to create an amazingly nice hiding spot!
