    I put a tupperware 4 inch plastic container in the bottom of
    his cage where he feels safer,I then spray him and make a big
    fuss about him getting in the water sometimes he just charges
    for the container other times he needs coaxing but usally
    with the spraying with warm water he heads down to the bottom
    of the cage and dosen't want to come out as long as I am
    spraying him with the bottle. Another thing is the water in
    the container should be on the cool side not cold but not hot
    the spray bottle should be hot turning warm as you spray him.
    Give it a try and maybe splash the water a little to show him
    its ok to go in....good luck
