Default cooling down a hedgehog

Its been really hot around hear latley, 80-87F, and my hedge hog has been splatting, trying to keep cool. its really cute, but I want to cool him down a bit. I dont have a fan or the AC on right now. any suggestions?

Default Re: cooling down a hedgehog

the most tried & true methods are:

-a large ceramic tile for your hedgie to splat on
-a frozen gel pack or water bottle (like used for a cooler) wrapped in cloth & put in the cage
-frozen gel packs/ice packs on the top of the cage
-cool drinking water

when putting ice packs on top of the cage, remember as they melt, there will be condensation & it will drip down. you may want to put something underneath (like a towel) to catch it.
