Default Heating

I'll be getting my first hedgehog towards the end of the summer of this year. The only spot I have to place him is against the wall in my room close to my window. I don't have any concerns during the summer months since it's always really warm, but during the winter it can get pretty cold in the house. I have a heat lamp I'm probably going to get two and I've also made a couple snuggle sacks out of fleece and I'll also have a lot of fleece in the cage. Are there any other things I can do to help keep the little guy warm during the fall/winter? I just really don't want to risk hibernation at all

You can use a space heater to heat just your room & keep it a little warmer for him. You can also put styrofoam insulation under and behind (and on the sides of) his cage to help protect it from the cold. Just leave the top & front open, at least, for ventilation.
