Default Re: hamster lying flat and still in sand bath

Hello

It certainly sounds like the heat is getting to them, and while that is normal behaviour to "pancake" and sand is cool, do keep a careful watch for signs of heat stroke.

Can you move the cage to the coolest room, keep curtains shut in the day and windows open at night.

Offer cold cucumber and frozen veggies. There are many threads with helpful tips. Hopefully just one more day and we'll have some relief!
