Looking for Suitable Hedgehog Cages? Here Are Options To Choose From

Why are these hedgehog cages suitable? We have only considered cages that hedgehog owners have used/ are still using and found great. It is up to you to decide which you prefer. Let’s jump straight into them!

OPTION #1. Living World Deluxe Habitat, Large

Living World Deluxe Habitat

Most important, this cage meets the required size for a hedgehog. Minimum dimensions for a hedgehog is 2 feet by 3 feet, that is 24” x 36”. Bigger is always better. This cage measures 37.8 inches length x 22.4 inches width x 22 inches height. You can always get a bigger size if you want.

NOTE: You cannot have two hedgehogs in one cage, they usually fight or breed excessively.

It is easy to clean, well ventilated, small enough to fit in your home and it opens up for you to reach all corners without struggle. If you want to use substrate bedding, you will have to get some bass pans made by the bass company. You can use fleece easily as the clip below will show.
