Default Re: Hedgehog at night!

Leave your lights on, but keep it fairly dim. It doesn't have to be dark. You can also use a red light. Some hedgehogs are active under red light.

Get her used to a bit of a schedule and she will then be used to you getting her up in the early evening with lights on. Although some are far more active as soon as lights are out, most will get used to you having them up in the evening with lights on.
