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:

Hey there! Outdoor exploration is a great way to provide sensory enrichment! Keep in mind though that the first couple times they’re out, they get loaded with new senses, so limit your time. Also be aware of anything on the ground they might be able to eat (other than grass which they may nibble a blade or two) and always be right next to them!
