Default Re: hamster lying flat and still in sand bath

Hello and welcome to HC!

I don't think its anything to worry about. Our Robo was lying flat yesterday, halfway in his sandbath and the rest of him on a flat stone in front of the sandbath. I keep some flat stones in the fridge and swap them over.
Probably to do with the heat.

I had a foster dwarf i called Pancake because he had this habit of going flat and wrapped himself around my wrist in a bracelet kind of fashion. Then he'd look around and go into normal hamster shape.

As long as Aster is otherwise behaving normally i wouldn't worry. They don't eat so much dry food in this weather either but enjoy their fresh food even more.
