I agree with the responses about biting but I wanted to comment about your playpen.

I noticed that Quigley always tries to escape from the pen if there is something interesting on the other side. If I've accidentally left a rag, extra blanket, or bag of food close enough to the boundary that he can smell it.

He is so determined to explore these things that he does not notice anything else in the pen. He's actually quite the escape artist, he figured out that he can lift the cage from the bottom by getting his nose between the bars. He also runs close to the edge and sometimes runs into the bars trying to get through them. Once he even tried to climb them (I stopped him right away).

But my point is that maybe there is something specific on the other side of the pen that your hedgie can smell. But if he is not actively trying to escape then maybe he just likes to run around the edges.
