Default Found a fly in my hedgies viv. Is this unsafe or a direction or something bad in his

a fly must of got into the viv when I had my window open. Are there any other reasons why there wa a fly in the viv or am I worrying about nothing? It may of just been attracted to his poo? Or is it a hygiene problem?

It probably just happened to get in & was attracted by the poop. I wouldn't worry if it was just one & a random incident. If you start seeing a lot of them or start noticing any sign of maggots in the enclosure, you'll want to increase how often you clean the cage & find a way to keep them out of the room/cage.
