Default How long until hibernation kicks in?

My hedgie is fine but I just want to know for future reference if anyone knows how long it takes for them to go into false hibernation from the cold?

You aren't going to find any timeline of how quickly it takes. It all depends on the hedgehog and the situation. Some hedgehogs are more sensitive than others to changes in temperature.

Have you had a temperature issue that has sparked your question?

I've wondered the same thing. New England weather is unpredictable enough - my area seems to take power outages to extreme randomness - sometimes we find ourselves in the dark for no understandable reason. I'm trying to take advantage of this weather to test different ways of covering the cage for maximum heat retention in case I'm not home when the power goes out.
