Default Sand?

Hello everone!
I was wondering weather I could add a tiny bit of water to Percy's sand to make it hold his digging? It wouldn't be wet.

He would be building a sandcastle then, like on the beach (kidding)

I wouldn't put water in the sand, no need, he's probably having fun just digging, just my opinion

I wouldn't, you would have to make it very wet for it to hold it's shape when he's been digging & they just like to dig in the dry sand, if they want to make burrows they should be able to do that in the substrate.

Wet sand sticks to you skin so Id imagine it would be a nightmare mess in the fur. Dry sand is best and, as above, they make good burrows out of most substrates.
