Default Succulents?

I was thinking about getting a succulent or two for decoration in my hedgie's cage, but I'm worried that he'll eat it.

Are they toxic to hedgies?

Many succulents are toxic if ingested. Others have mild medicinal properties (like aloe) where if ingested in large amounts it can also do damage. I like to refer to this list of safe succulents when I'm designing something for my reptiles. It should apply to hedgehogs as well but I can't promise anything. Your best bet is either a succulent that is completely safe with every species it's been tested on, a fake one, or elevating it in a way that your hedgehog doesn't have access to it.
