Default How fast does hibernation occur?

Hi, I’ve only had pepper a week, so am new to the whole hedgie hibernation thing.

During the Day pepper basically has his own bedroom (small room only has a set of drawers and a wardrobe in) and then room for his cage and his play pen. At night time I let him run around my bedroom which I have hedgie proofed.

He always tends to hide behind my curtains but tonight he hid behind my mirror for 5minutes , obviously with the room being bigger and not having a heater over him it’s not going to be the right temperature in all areas of the room.

Could this cause him to hibernate ?

He’s currently asleep under my blanket with me even though it’s 11pm at night and he’s usually running around by now.

I’m scared he keeps trying to hibernate but I like letting him have full run of the room as he gets a big area to sprint about in!

I put tunnels out for him and boxes to play in.

Should I stop doing this ? Will this hurt him in the long run ?

Thanks anyone !
