If the thermometer is reading the same as normal, it should be the same as normal. The concern would be if there is a draft from the heater. Hedgies feel drafts even if they are warm drafts. If your furnace/heater is running more often because of the drop in temperature, it would be producing more draft. If there is a concern about a draft, you can use heavy clear plastic like is cut from a roll at the fabric stores. It works great to hold in warm and prevent drafts but still allows in light and view out.

Some hedgehogs also know when winter is coming. My Smokey used to get more of an appetite and put on weight, just like a bear. :lol: Come spring he'ed loose it.
