    Do you feed veggies daily? What veggies did you give him yesterday?
    I find my piggies poo changes colour slightly depending on what they have to eat. Nothing to worry about unless it changes permanently, or you see any sign of blood, discharge, gunge etc

    Some piggies do get very dark poops. Unless accompanied by other symptoms - diarrhea or 'constipation' - I wouldn't worry too much.
