    Hello! I recently adopted a hedgehog about a month ago, her name's Ryuk and I was told she's around six years old. In the month that I've owned her I've noticed that she doesn't use her wheel as much as I thought she would. She's very friendly and active and doesn't 'act old' so I'm not sure if...
  3. DIY How to make your own
    Hi all! Like a lot of people I've seen on here, I want to have the best possible wheel for my hedgehog, but I'm not in the states, so getting a CSBW is going to be very expensive. I won't have my new little buddy for a couple of months yet, so I decided the next best option would be to make my...

    Hello! When I first got my hedgie (close to a year ago now) the recommendations I kept getting in regards to an exercise wheel was a silent spinner from living world. I bought him a 12" silent spinner and I have not had any problems with it in the last year. I have, however, been hearing lately...

    I have a 13 week old hedgie. I never catch her on the wheel (but I know she goes on because I find the pee&poop) so I only just discovered today that she is too big for her starter wheel (her back is arching and she falls off). It definitely looks too dangerous to keep in there. I bought the...

    Hi everyone, I'm a new hedgehog owner and am nervous that my little guy (Draco) is running too much? He is 10 weeks old and spends the majority of his evening on his wheel. I have a dig box, fleece forest, TPtube, balls, and burrow bag in his cage. At first, I thought he might just be...

    Hello everyone! I am becoming very frustrated with our current wheel situation. I have tried several different products and I just can't seem to find a permeant solution for our 1 year old hedge, Popeye. Currently, I am using You & Me Exercise saucer in large. It's working so far, but only...

  14. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    A little background. Macy is now 3 years old. I've had her since she was 1 and a half. This summer I made her a two-level cage out of a dresser compared to a regular cage. She seems to love this cage. It makes me so happy to see her have more space to roam. The bottom level has a wooden hut and...

    I know I am supposed to provide my hedgehog with a wheel and I will. It's just that the breeder I got her from never gave her hedgehogs running wheels and was strongly against it - or rather she said that wheel time should always be supervised because they can easily "run themselves to death"...
