    The hedgehogs that are commonly kept as pets are from Africa. This means they require a warm environment. If your hedgehog is cool to the touch, walks with a stagger, becomes inactive and stops eating or running or simply won't unroll from a ball, it is probably too cold. Here is an article on hedgehog hibernation
    and members of our forum can help you as well. A warm hedgehog is a happier, healthier hedgehog so consider your hedgehog's temperature requirements as one of the most important things you can do for your hedgehog
