Default Leo's...change?

Hey everyone,

My girlfriend requested that I post something on here. I'm sure he's fine..but I thought I'd get some opinions.

First, let me state the obvious facts. he's finally got a great working CHE set up in the area of 75-76 degrees in his C&C cage (a 2X3 cage bottom with a 1X2 loft). He's roughly 3.5 months old.

We have finally switched him off his breeder's food choice. We currently have him on Sunseed Vita Exotics Hedgehog food, with a healthy supplement of cooked meats and veggies and occasional mealworms.

Over the last few weeks we've noticed he's really grown in length and girth, finally starting to look like a real hedgehog! Our problem is, lately (the last 5 days or so) he's not been wheeling as much (way less than a mile). All he really seems to want to do is sleep, eat LOTS, and poop even more. The poop is the normal dark color, so no worries there.

I'm thinking he's just going through a growth spurt and needs all the rest he can get. Any one else have a take on this?

Does he have a regular light schedule?
If you guys have been staying up later than usual it may be that he's one of those hedgies who are more sensitive to the light.
Otherwise it might just be that he's a growing baby so he's sleeping lots

yes he has a regular light schedule (forgot to mention that!), his light comes on at 8 am, and is turned off at 8 pm.
