Most of my zoo buddies enjoy mud baths. For me, a sand bath is better. Have you ever rubbed coarse material on yourself to remove dead skin cells? That’s what they call exfoliation. You might not want to rub sand on your face, but if you tried sand on your feet, it could soften your callouses. My sand bath, removes anything stuck in my coat. That’s nice. It makes me sleek and smooth so I can swim faster. Most of all, I like how the sand feels.
