Ball and wheel issues

I tried using the search option but it returned too many results I guess to show them. I have a little guy about 4 months old. He doesn't use his wheel and just sits in a ball and poops when I put him in one. I've been having him swim for exercise but its pretty worrysome. I called the place I got him at and they said it wasn't normal. Ideas? I tried putting him in the wheel but he just runs out. He eats, and eliminates so I figure he is healthy. He runs around when I hold him and knows who I am as well. I know this since he used to lick me, but now he doesn't anymore.

On a random note, it is very true about lizards being able to burn themselves on heating rocks/pads, etc. It's possible for any animal, I'm sure, but I know with lizards it's because they're cold blooded so they feel the warmth but a lizard doesn't know when they're bodies are too warm.

As far as warm blooded animals, I've never heard of somebody using one for one before, but I'm sure if your hedgie falls asleep on it, there's a decent chance he/she won't wake up before it's hot enough to burn.
