I've got one for Beck, and though I haven't used it in a long time, he actually used to love it. As in, I would lay it open on the ground and he would RUN into it. Nowadays, he's been spoiled because he just has free run of my room all the time, so he might not be as excited about it now, but before I was in my own place it was the only way he was allowed to explore outside of his cage (parents were quite strict about hedgehogs, messes, shavings, etc-- I don't have to worry about that in residence ). He never used to poop in his either. Each hedgehog is different?
