    Advice on lighting

    My hedgehog room is in a walk in closet that does not get any natural sun light. Should I get a UV light for the hedgehog room? Is sun light crucial?

    thank you,
    Alexis

    I like sunlight If you can make it bright and not dark and dingy with artificial lighting it may be okay though

    Do you think a UV bulb would help?

    Not sure-I have never used one. I don't think I would use it especially with an albino or rev pinto hedgehog as there is some concern that they may cause skin cancer
