Lighting for Cage

1636 Views 5 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Hedgiepets
I was wondering if I could get some suggesting for cage lighting...I usually leave a lamp on in the living room, but lately my son has turned it off on his way to school. (I leave for work earlier) I am wondering if it would just be easier to have another ceramic lamp with a heating light, and then change it to a ceramic heater for the night time. Will it hurt having the direct light on his cage, or just I just ensure that the light is left on.

Thank You

I would either talk to your son about leaving the light on or maybe leave a note attached saying "Please leave on". Sometimes, they need visual cues! At least he is turning off the light, most kids, wouldn't think about it.
You really only need the general room light. Hedgies need at least 12 hours of light, so during the winter, you have to keep a light on.
