Default Re: hibernation and winter....

That cage extension sounds like it might work, but you'll have to do some experimenting to see how well you can heat it. Keep in mind that whatever temperature you had your room at for the summer, that's what she's used to now - so be careful how much lower you keep it because even if it's within hedgie-safe temperatures, it may still cause a hibernation attempt with her because it's lower than her usual. Letting her have the run of the room sounds very nice for her for summer, but not practical during winter, unfortunately. Good luck with getting things set up!
