I've never heard that before! I looove cold water. :shock:lane_m said:My hedgies get room temperature water from the water cooler that I keep unplugged.
It's unplugged because I hate cold water!
For some reason (I must have read it somewhere) I think it's better for humans to drink room temperature water and I figured it is the same for hedgies.
Better to worry about it tipping over than to worry if hedgehog is able to drink enough out of the water bottle, if hedgehog might get his tongue stuck or chip a tooth. Getting a heavy flat dish also helps it not get tipped over. Oh and using liners instead of shavings helps it not get filled up with bedding.milo610 said:I haven't actually bought a water bottle or water dish yet because I haven't decided which I would prefer. I guess more people prefer dishes? I just wouldn't want to have to worry about it tipping over.
This seems like something I'd like to use, would you recommend something like this?hedgielover said:You might want to try something like this.

if you can attach it to the cage. It might be safer than an actual water bottle as it just has a small narrow bowl for the water to go into. Wait for other opinions though.
