Default Re: Uh....

I pondered this for a very long time... It might be my overtired mind not letting me think straight...It's 3am XD But I figured I'd help hedgie love and do some highlighting...

The hedgehogs in those videos are as calm as any hedgehog I have ever seen.
Me back in again...I don't think my boy would EVER enjoy swimming, so I would never bother. He tries to climb out of his bath as it is However, I too think that those hedgies are extremely calm, and in my experience, the only time an animal is calm is when they are relaxed and/or happy(with exceptions of squealing in joy and bounding around enjoying their freedom). All the animals that I have ever owned(please don't make me count XD we're well beyond 10 within the past 24 years of my life)...They would freak, spaz, bite, kick, run far far away if they are ever put into a situation they have an extreme dislike of(I have my share of bruises to show for it). So those hedgies are quite enjoying themselves and having fun. I would NOT recommend just ANYONE doing this with their hedgies, not without the proper introductions and slow process of getting them used to swimming.
