Default Re: Hedgehog Died, Want Another

Sounds like he tried to hibernate. Do you have any sort of heating system other than room heat? Perhaps when you get another hedgehog you should invest in a ceramic heat emitter to sure the cage is of adequate warmth at all times. Heat pads don't heat the air, so they aren't sufficient in keeping the entire cage warm.
