That’s the dark side of the belief that a wild animal, because it’s practically defenseless, is some kind of cross between a human baby and a live teddy bear … poor hedgehog. I'm glad I'm not cute :shock:

Makes me so sad to see them so helpless! Shouldn't they at least have something in the water so they can climb out and rest?

The hedgehogs in the videos seem to enjoy being in the tub, especially Schming. What I don't like is those videos will give every moron out there the idea that their hedgehog will enjoy doing that. Of all our hedgehogs, there isn't one that would enjoy being on it's back in water. I'm sure if I tried that with some of them, they'd have a heart attack out of fear. :(

What bothers me the most (besides their voices) is that they are all really overweight. I could see it being a medical condition on one but come on all three... I would like to see what the ladies look like.

I hope everyone that has the knowledge is sending them a message or flagging the video.
As stated earlier by Nancy , the largest fear, on my end, is that someone else will do that to their hog and freak them out at the VERY least. The idea of rolling a hedgie in water as fun seems so cruel.. I can't even imagine someone doing that to me in a pool let alone a tiny animal..

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.

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.

The hedgehogs in those videos look like very experienced swimmers. Having hedgehogs swim is okay if you give them a place to rest if they want to and don't make a session longer than you think your hedgehog can handle. If the hedgehog looks frantic let it stop. The hedgehogs in those videos are as calm as any hedgehog I have ever seen. Compare those hedgehogs to Herisson's first swimming lesson:
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.

I thought we already established that the hedgehogs in videos were okay. Was my reply unclear in some way? Let me know so I can revise it.
No they are not okay :cry: Did you not see how his head went under water. Thats Not good for Hedgies!
