Going outside?

Hello, everyone!

I am a new hedgie owner and while it is still too cold in NY (50 degrees today), I am hoping for warm weather soon and think my Tina would love to go outside! She is very explorative.

Do you all take your hedgies outside? What are your best tips and tricks for doing so? What things do I need to be cautious of/excited about? What do your hedgies like?

Thanks in advance for any thoughts!!! :grin:

I was thinking the same thing when I read about dandelions - I've always seen them as safe. I know they are known in the pet rabbit world as being quite safe for rabbits. I looked it up and, yes, dandelions are on the safe list for hedgehogs:

On a totally separate note, I just love the way those of you from the UK refer to a yard as a "garden." It always conjures up such pleasant images. :D
Here's a handy list from this forum on some safe and not safe foods for hedgehogs (3rd post on the thread):
