Default Hamsters liking water?

So both me and my friend have hamsters and we talk about their weird habits.
Her's has started to wash with water from its water bottle.
From the video looks like just a quick one, but it does it periodically.
I always thought they didn't like to get wet.

She has a sand bath which it uses, and seems happy and healthy.
Should she be worried?
I'm worried about her hammy as that's very odd.

Does sound a bit strange. Can she use a bowl instead and see if that stops her? A small ceramic one is best and put it on a shelf where it can’t tip.

I've just messaged her about trying a small ceramic bowl.
We shall see what will happen.

Update*
Hamster decided to use the water bowl to wash.
Just put its little paws in and gave a little wash.
She is a short haired syrian.
Maybe she just wants to wash.
The house isn't too warm either, the degu's can't handle the heat.
