for most hedgies even 70 degrees is too low. most hedgies thrive closer to 73-76. i personally try to maintain my hedgies area at a full 75-78 degrees by the use of a small space heater that i aim directly at his cage, about a foot away from his cage.

If you use a reptile heat mat, it will warp or melt the plastic. A human heating pad set on low is just fine and both my Peaches and Cinder lived with a heating pad in their cage for the last years of their lives.
