Well, the gravel bath was not a big hit. Jeremiah scared himself with the noise he made while running through the gravel. He'd sniff it, run through REALLY fast (as though instead of gravel it was hot coals), look back ("what's after me????") and go into his cork bark hide. Maybe i will try it in his outside playpen once it cools off a little.

It's pea gravel, washed and dust free. It is recommended in the "Complete pet owner's manual". If he doesn't wake up before i go to bed, I'll wait to put it in his cage until early morning so i can supervise him.

I know hedgehogs like dust baths, but it is not good for them.

I've never heard of people giving gravel baths, though.

It might work if the pieces were big enough to not be swallowed and not sharp. A lot of different gravels have sharp edges that I could see causing an eye or foot injury. You'd want to make sure it wasn't dusty also. I've thought of it before but haven't found something I wanted to use yet.
