How To Pick A Hedgehog Cage

There’s a lot more to know about hedgehog cages in general. Even though they’re all very much different, some things can be applied to most, if not all of them. We’ll even go into the nitty-gritty details so it’s much easier for you to understand what you’re buying and why.

Best Bedding For Hedgehogs – There’s no hedgehog cage without good bedding. Bedding is an essential part of a cage because it simulates the natural environment, keeps the hedgehog somewhat warm, promotes their natural burrowing instincts, and it keeps the cage cleaner and odor-free. preferably you’ll want to get dust-free bedding because one that is not can harm the hedgehog.

Hedgehog Cage Size – Veterinarians say and recommend a minimum of 4 square feet of space for a single hedgehog. The ones that we have here that have the exact square footage are 24x 24 cages and the ones that are doubled in length so they can house more than one hedgehog.

Accessories And Supplies – There are a few must-have hedgehog cage accessories. The first and probably the most important one is a heater that will keep your hedgehog warm during colder days where temperatures drop below the normal room temperature. Other things include toys to keep them active and to keep them entertained and their diet consists of mostly invertebrates like worms and other bugs but they can also eat fruits. You should keep a variety of food readily available.

Hedgehog Cage Cleaning – Cleaning a hedgehog cage shouldn’t be a hassle because you’ve got the cage and bedding to help you. You should clean it when you notice that the bedding has lost its absorption power or it’s just not odorless anymore. Then it’s easy to either lift the top part of the cage from the base or scoop up the residue ad discard it.

Usual Prices – The price of a cage really depends on the materials used to make it, its features, size, and other things. For a large cage with full equipment, you’ll be paying around 130 dollars. Typically, the price really won’t go over 200 dollars even if it’s an outdoor and well rust and corrosion-resistant cage.

Cage Toy And Price – What you will have to spend on constantly are hedgehog toys. Especially the ones that are meant to keep your hedgehogs’ claws and teeth and check. On their own, they might not be expensive but this can easily accumulate. The most expensive things will be essential supplies like a heater though.

Where To Find One – You’re likely to easily find almost any, if not any hedgehog cage you desire on the internet. The specialist in this is definitely amazon. If you can really find a hedgehog cage, try to look for a cage for other small animals like chinchillas and rabbits. You can find one at your local store but amazon will definitely have a greater variety of options.

Common Brands – The most common brands for these cages are usually Kaytee cages, Midwest homes for Pets, and Pawhut. All specialize in certain fields but you can definitely count on them to be the finest made ones. No one is to say that you can’t find an excellent cage outside of these brands like the Little giant brand that makes galvanized cages.

To Sum Up

There’s no right or wrong pick in this article since we did say all are the best in some areas, depending on what you’re after. All you have to keep in mind is that a minimum sized cage for hedgehogs should be 4 square feet and you’re good to go. If you want to check out bedding options for hedgehogs you can always read the article about bedding hedgehogs and if you want to be specific about the eclosure type, you can read the article about hedgehogs enclosures.
