Hedgehogs that live in captivity naturally occur mainly in dry habitats and do not come into contact easily with pools of water to wash themselves in. Rather, they use sand to abrade the skin. Their skin is therefore not made to get wet often and they are very sensitive to fungal infections on the skin. Bathing with water is therefore not very desirable, but sometimes there is really no other option.
