    I'd say no. They could get sick from the cold, drown, and they would probably be very unhappy about it. If you want to clean them however there are ways just never shower them. Such as leaving a small amount of water under they're feet to run over, giving them lots of bedding (I've found they use bedding to clean themselves) or there's a type of sand bath you can buy which works the best which is generally used for Chinchillas which works great for my little creatures. you have to remember these are desert animals meaning there is little water where they're from so they don't tend to use it to clean themselves and it would only make them cold.
