Default Hedgie biting cage

Hi everyone.

I've had my hedgie for about a month now and this mornig I noticed that she was biting her cage last night. She broke her canine tooth while she was biting it. This has never happened before and I'm worried that she will break more teeth. Is there any way I can prevent this?

Does it have a wheel? Coroplast on the sides?

I'm getting her one soon, but I'm not sure if this one is okay. http://www.petmarket.rs/male-zivotin...anje-crni.html I live in Serbia, so I don't have that many options, and all other wheels I've found are too small or have wires.

They need a solid wheel, that one won't work. Have you thought of making one yourself? There are tutorials on how to make them.

Your hedgehog might be bored and that's why he's biting the cage.

You didn't answer about the coroplast sides.

Yes, but I haven't yet found all of the elements I need. I also couldn't find those coroplast sheets, unfortunately our recources are a bit limited here.

I have put her in a big plastic tub for the time being, so she doesnt't hurt herself. I have found one more wheel the right size, but im not sure if it will do.

Do you have more pictures or the name in English to look it up?

If the front section comes off it would probably be good.

Just in a different colour, no name.

I asked already if it comes off, I'm waiting for an answer.
