I know there were a couple of topics about this on the old forums, but I just want to get something clear. Everyone is so worried that if you let your hedgie play in sand, they will get it in unwanted places. True, but isn't that the exact same thing that would happen in the wild? And like someone else said, its like if you go to the beach, you get sand in every crevice of your body, but you take a shower and it all comes out. So if you give your hedgie a bath after he's done playing in the sand, it would come out too, wouldn't it? I've been wanting to let my hedgie dig in some sand. Does it HAVE to be expensive sand that you buy? or can it be natural sand from your yard (not dirt, but sand.)? because I have a LOT of nice, white sand on the land at my house.
