Oop...yeah, not the right bulb. You CAN give it a try if you want - some hedgehogs are bothered by the red light, but some don't care. But most people use CHEs - ceramic heat emitters. They're either black or white, and solid ceramic, not clear glass. If you look at the heating thread I linked to before, I'm pretty sure there's examples linked in there. They're usually between $30-40 in stores, but you can find them online for cheaper sometimes - you just have to be careful not to get scammed by that, since sometimes they arrive broken or they might break soon after you start using them.

The cage looks good!
