  1. Heating
    Hey guys! I’m back with another question. I’ve been half setting up my cage (still have to add the liners + bedding and litter pan) but I’ve been testing out my heating set up for today and had a few questions. My CHE is connected to a thermostat that I have set at about 76.5 degrees. I have 2...
  2. Heating
    Just a few minutes ago, I heard a pretty distinct 'pop!' noise from my hedgehog's cage. I'm not sure how else to describe it other than I've heard similar sounds from normal light bulbs, but the one I just heard was louder and more metallic. I use two heat lamps for her, one with a 60-watt...

    The enclosure that I am setting up is pretty long and I'm planning on getting 2 ceramic heat bulbs to cover the space. I saw things saying that the optimal wattage for hedgehogs is 150. Should I get 2 75 watt bulbs to equal 150 or would having the combined wattage of the 2 bulbs a bit higher be...

    Hey there. I've only been a hedgehog owner for about a month and my little one is super sweet. He's around 8 months and is a pinto cinnicot (sp?).

I do have one question though, can you just use like a regular lamp and just replace the light bulb with a ceramic heat emitter? I have a lamp that would be perfect but I am not sure if that...

    I have a CHE in my vivarium for my hedgehog. It is high enough so he cant reach it even if he climbs on his toys and house. I have had some people tell me that heat mats are better than CHEs as CHEs can cause cancer (im not sure if this is right) but heat mats only heat a small area, his viv is...

    I've had Gypsy for about 3 weeks now, and her cage has had a ceramic heat emitter in it. Since I bought it, I noticed it hasn't done a great job of keeping her home warm. I'd like to keep her cage at 76F but sometimes I'll walk in and it will be 68F! Yesterday it was 64! Of course I freaked out...
