Smile Wheel sleeping

Baby Quillow has been sleeping in her wheel the past couple of nights, before she wheels. This is probably just her being a silly little hedgehog, but I just want to make sure it doesn't mean anything else like she's too hot to sleep in her castle or something. Just worried! Thanks!

Around 80 degrees. It moves up and down about 2 degrees every hour. Last night I think it was at 78 degrees. [fahrenheit]

You generally want the temperature to be 73-78 F. Hedgies get heat stroke easily. You also don't want the temperature to be fluctuating that much. Hedgies can attempt hibernation because they think winters coming, when the temp is high then drops. You can put ceramic tile(s) in the cage, they are good for the hedgie to cool off with.

yeah she is probably a bit hot, i agree use some ceramic tiles, you can even use the chinchillers if you have those lying around like i did or dont have any other ceramic.
