Default Re: Hedgehog Died, Want Another

I'm sorry you lost your hedgehog. However, if you want to get another, I'd highly suggest doing some more research before you do - especially with heating and food. You'll want to get a different heating set up if you get another hedgehog, either a space heater or a CHE set up. The room needs to be warmer than 72 degrees, and a hedgehog needs a lighting schedule of 12-14 hours as well to avoid hibernation.

Whether you end up getting another hedgehog or another kind of animal, please take your time and do plenty of research first - I would wait at least a month before you get anything and spend that time saving up money, making sure you have all of the proper equipment, and doing as much reading as you possibly can - spend all of your spare time reading about whatever animal you want.
