Our habit is designed for the needs of a hedgehog. First off, we have a little shelter for our hedgehog that has a roof and is closed off on all of the sides except the front. Second, we have a food bowl and a water bowl made out of carboard and Styrofoam.

For the different wind conditions the critter cottage withstand rain and be susceptible to wind.
The recycled materials we used in our project were the clear dividers and old newspaper. We used these materials because they were parts that were needed for our project and they were not being used.
Challenges We Faced:
Obviously we ran into some challenges. First off, the main structure of our critter cottage was weak so we problem solved and decided to put wood beams to strengthen the overall structure. Second, was the amount of bedding we put. This was a challenge because our type of species likes to burrow an make nests, so it was hard to figure out the right amount of bedding for the needs of our four-toed hedgehog.
