Cages for hedgehogs?

Postby ROBYNREECE » Fri Apr 29, 2016 8:08 am


We are getting 2 hedgehogs from the pet store (maybe pet store was a bad idea but deposit paid now)
They kept their hedgehogs buy the snakes in like an aquarium type cage like the snakes are kept in with an infared lamp.
I have been reading up on them and some people say they need allot of ventilation and they show a cage like a Guinea pig cage.The pet store says they need to be kept warm.
I am now not sure what I am suppose to be keeping them in.

Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

They require a decent ventilation and heat as they do not handle cold very well. Research them and you can also contact for help.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.
