    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...

    So I just (yesterday) got my hog, Florence, from a family friend whose son thought she was too "boring". They didn't really take good care of her (not great food, way too small cage, no heating, etc.). We're waiting for all of the parts to arrive for her C&C cage we are making, and right now we...

    I am getting my first hedgie, Ian, tomorrow. I set up my cage and heating set up last night and I have a question about it. His cage is at the end of my bed and has a complete CHE set up (lamp, thermometer, thermostat). Is it ok for me to sleep with my fan on low?

    Hello hedgie lovers, I have a question for you. I have been thinking about a cheap way to extend my hedgie's living space. My idea is to make a hole at the back of her terrarium so she can move towards an area behind it that is around 1m². The only issue is that the external part will not be...

    I have read loads of forums and reviews of various products. I have come to the conclusion that the zoo zone 2 is most appropriate. what I'm not 100% sure on is heating. some people say to use a CHE where others say it could melt the cage and be a fire hazard. some say heat mats are great others...

    Hi, is it alright to have a heat lamp sitting directly on the wire top of my cage? As opposed to making a set up or rigging a stand where the lamp would hang above the cage. Will putting it directly on top make the metal bars extremely hot or anything? thank you for any help! :):D

    Hello! I've had my hedgehog for about 7 months. I did research before getting him, but wasn't sure what type of heating system to use for his cage. I wanted a ceramic heat lamp, but because he had a tuber-ware cage, I decided against it. I keep my room around 68 degrees, and I watched him...
