Hedgehogs are nocturnal animals. You need the lights to be on 12-14 hours a day only...Your hog needs 10-12 hours of darkness too.
Is it bad if he isn't having this much time in the dark? I'm a college student at the end of my semester and I have the light on until 3 or 4 most nights. So Wimbley is only getting about 3 hours of dark at this point. Wimbley doesn't come out when the light is on even if I have my lamp on pointing at the wall to make it as dim as possible.LarryT said:Your hog needs 10-12 hours of darkness too.
