 Advice on Hedgehogs

Hi all,
I am thinking of getting a hedgehog within the next two weeks or so, but I’d like to know a bit more. I’ve done a fair amount of research already; I know they need a fairly warm room (75 degrees or so) so they don’t go into hibernation, they prefer water bottles, their diet is varied (light cat food that is high in protein and low in fats or hedgehog food, with treats like fruits, greens, veggies, insects, and cooked meats supplemented into their diet four days of the week). I also know they need a well ventilated cage with a solid bottom and substrate can vary from non-cedar wood shavings to blankets and a wheel is good for them as well.
Please let me know if I am missing anything or you have advice from experience. Also, I haven’t really read anything about their disposition or normal behavior, so please give some info about that! Also, feel free to post pics of your hedgies!

Amy
