Default Pooping In The Bath?

Another question, sorry . My hedgehog, whenever i bathe her always poops several times in the tub. Is this common? Either way, is there a way to somehow prevent this from happening? It can be annoying having to fish them out while trying to clean her. Thanks!

Both mine do it all the time I don't think you can stop it, you'll just have to change the water after she goes...poop is part of the joy of having hedgies

The warm water relaxes the anus muscle and so makes elimination easier

Shadow loves pooping in his bath! It's in the sink so I just empty all the water and start new. I'm too lazy to fish it out so I just pour some bleach afterward

He used to poop EVERYTIME I clipped his nails...Thank goodness he now just goes in the bath!!
