Wheels are very important for your hedgehog, providing mental and physical stimulation.
Most hedgehogs will use their wheel every evening without fail, and will run for hours.
It is a messy process as hedgehogs poop and pee as they run often crushing it into their wheel as they run. Enjoy cleaning up after their night of fun!
A safe wheel must be big enough for the hedgehog, must be solid (not bars or metal) and must not have any sharp areas. Hedgehogs have very small, delicate feet and even a small cut can be very painful to a hedgehog.
Types of wheels we suggest are: Carolina storm, Carolina Bucket, Silent Spinner and Flying Saucer wheel. There are many people making Bucket wheels however without trying them we can't recommend them.
