Just got my first hedgehog sunday and shes become accustomed to her home and what not. But ever since I've gotten her the CHE and what not shes been sleeping like a rock and barely coming out only to eat and drink, other than the play time. Is this bad?

Also, how old is she? Young hegies sleep a lot. I got mine at 6 weeks and he's now 4 months old and I've noticed him being a lot more active in the last month or so since his second quilling.
They are nocturnal too, so it could just be that she's up and playing while you are sleeping.

If you're using a heater you need a thermometer. If you don't know what her cage temperature is at she could be too warm or to cold and you would have no idea. Sleeping a lot can be so many things, illness, over heating, hibernation, not eating, boredom, shyness, normal baby sleeping, normal nocturnal sleeping habits.

Help us out with some more information.

Shes not shy, shes not sneezing or anything like that shes got good stools i guess you would call it and shes not hybernating cuz i can wake her up. She also eats alot when i give it to her and we play with her all the time. shes only 8 weeks old i believe. so im not sure if its normal baby sleep but im going to get a thermometer sometime today to see if shes too hot.
