We are in the process of researching hegies so we can bring one home and care for it properly. Our house (we are in central alberta) is usually 70'F, but at night it goes down to 67 - 68'F for sleeping. Will this be too cold for a hedgie? And then on the flipside our house can get up to 83'F in the summer. I've read lots of info but some of its contradicting, so would like to know from people that actually have one what they do. Especially if there is someone in Alberta that has one as they will know our crazy Alberta weather / temperatures.

70F is too cold for a hedgie. You will need an alternate heat source. There are many threads on heating on here if you do a search on heating.

83F is fine for a summer temperature.

Hi, I live in Northern Alberta and have to keep the room my hedgies are in about 75F year round. I use an oil filled space heater to heat the whole room and it works great. The room is in my basement so it doesn't get to warm in the summer. If you are only going to have one hedgie you can use either a space heater or a ceramic heat emitter to keep him/her warm.
