I had one of these when I had ferrets and they loved it. I was wondering if anyone has tried these with hedgehogs? The only drawback I could see is if the quills got stuck.

There's a girl on youtube (SnowdropHedgie) who has one for her hedgie Teazel. Teazel apparently loves it and likes to sleep in it during floor time. She has a video of all the toys she has for her hedgehog, if you are interested in what they might have fun with:


I found it pretty helpful when I was looking for toys for my first hedgie! Just be aware that some of these should only be used during play time out of the cage, not kept in the cage all the time. ^_^

When I looked at those, I ended up not going with them because cleaning stomped-in poop would be so, so aggravating. Instead, I went for 4" diameter PVC pipe (the white pipe rated for drinking water is thinner & cheaper; the black pipe rated for sewers is thicker & more expensive). My tiny friend LOVES his PVC pipe mazes!

Real pottery flowerpots are good too. Some hedgies like to hide in them. The pottery also helps wears their nails down too.

The biggest problem I have ever run into with a long flexible tube is with a hedgehog who did not want to come out. A slight raising of the quills and you will not move that hedgehog from the center of the tube. The more you try to convince them to come out, the more they raise their quills, wedging themselves in there nice and tight so that you cannot remove them from their safe/fun hiding spot.

That was my biggest concern. I might wait on this until he's a little more comfortable with his new surroundings.
