How large is it? It doesn't look like it has enough floor space to me, but it could just be the pictures. Also, I'm not sure you would be able to use a ceramic heat emitter with that kind of cage, it seems like the metal would get too hot and possibly burn your or the hedgehog. You'd have to use a space heater to heat the whole room to 73 F or higher.

With all that rust, all that keeps popping to mind is tetanus. Never know if hedgie would climb, or paw, or chew the wires and cut themselves on something.

For something quick easy and cheap, go with Larry's idea of the rubbermaid tubs.

Though you won't be able to use a ceramic heater, you will need a space heater to keep the room at min 73F.

You should check out the discussion thread http://www.hedgehogcentral.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=71

The materials can easily be found in stores like Target and Walmart. However, you will need to find a sign store to get coroplast if you are getting wire sides. In the cage discussion and example threads, you'll see that almost all of the c&c cages have the extra bit of "plastic" lining the bottom, to keep the hedgies from climbing and escaping through the holes.

The second picture you used is my cages. I bought everything at Home Depot including the Coroplast. They sell in in 8x25 sheets and it was enough for me to make two cages that are 3x4 each with 10" height for the sides so that they cant climb the wire.
