Basic Hedgehog Set Up

Getting a hedgehog is a very exciting time and it's important to ensure you have done your 'homework' to ensure they are a suitable pet for you and that you can give them the right care and best life.

If you are just starting your research, then this is just a quick list of what you will need to consider and provide for your hedgehog: 

  • Enclosure - a vivarium or cage (min 3ft long, not smaller)
  • Substrate - fleece liners or Finacard (no wood shavings)
  • Heat source - heat lamp or heat mat 
  • Wheel
  • House/bed
  • Tunnel
  • Toys
  • Food and water bowls

Check back for future posts on each of the above, I'll explain what I use in my set up and why.
