    Hey everyone, I just have a quick question about what wattage you'd recommend for a heat lamp. Right now everything is fine and warm in my house so I'm not worried, but I want to be sure Quill will be OK once its summer and AC will be on. His set up is 36"x18", no divisions or anything, just a...

    Hello I am planning on getting a hedgehog soon. But I have found a problem. I want a plastic tub enclosure for its ease, light weight and price, but I cant get it warm enough. My house dips down to around 65 at night in the winter and I know they need to be warmer. I cannot leave the lid off...

    I've found some on amazon, but I don't have time to wait for it to ship. I looked at petco and petsmart online and saw various "basking bulbs" and stuff for lizards, but nothing specifically saying "ceramic heat emitter." I haven't gone and actually looked in the store as I'm on vacation but I...

    I have a 2x3 C&C cage and I'm heating it with a 150 watt heat emitter and it just doesn't seem to be keeping up. The thermostat is ALWAYS on, even when I have it on the highest setting. Would at 250 watt overheat my hedgie? I know its going to be very cold this week and I'm worried about it...
  9. Hibernation
    My little hedgie is at my Aunt's house, and she called to say that Thistle (my hedgie) is making her nervous. They left for 3 days, and she had seen that Thistle hardly ate anything and hardly drank anything. She doesn't really run on her wheel at night anymore. My aunt went and checked on her...

    I recently got a gorgeous hedgie yesterday, and he ate and drank well. :) However he seemed to be going to sleep not under the fleece we provided but just on the heat mat by his litter tray and wheel. Because of this my mum said to turn the temperature down to 20C or 68F. My heat mat takes up...

    Ok, so I just brought Betsy out for a bit (it's 1:00 am) and she would not uncurl... so I decided to put her by the heater and immediately she came out! Does this mean she's not warm enough? :/ I have her in my closet on the floor (the only place the cage will fit). I know there's drafts and...
