Re: How do you keep hedgie cool?
First of all, all of the above mentioned "methods" are excellent ways of chilling a hedgehog unnecessarily. Rarely does a hedgehog get so hot that they need to be cooled. They handle the heat quite well; they are genetically adapted to hot areas. Like any animal they slow down in the heat but it's not dangerous. Not like chilling is.
If you have a particularly hot day, first make sure to keep as much heat out of the room as possible. Close the window and cover it with a heavy curtain or blind to block the sunlight (and prevent it from warming the room). Once the sun sets and the temperatures drop, open the window and put a fan in it. Bring the cooler outside air inside. Once you get the room cool, shut it up and keep the next days heat out.
