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...

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.

The hedgehogs in those videos are as calm as any hedgehog I have ever seen. Compare those hedgehogs to Herisson's first swimming lesson: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6OUWk3y4GPk
Please don't get after me for my video of Herisson. I know he looks a little frantic. Please note that this was his first time swimming ever so he still isn’t too sure about it. Also note that the tub slopes so that on one end he can touch the bottom. He also wasn't swimming very long either. Now after a few more swimming lessons he tolerates swimming but still isn't as comfortable as the hedgehogs in those videos above.

Re: Uh....

The video of Fraggle "swimming" has a part where the hedgehog's ENTIRE HEAD is submerged as it struggles to right itself several times.

I can't watch this kind of thing.

Re: Uh....

I occasionally let my hedgie swim in the tub but i have a large thing floating that he can climb off and on of when he feels.
