    Is it ok to let my newly paired boys be unsupervised now?

    Just to start, the boar I just adopted is Pumba (4 year old cuy mix) and my boar that needed a partner is Pete (3 1/2 shorthair). They are in a 30 sq ft enclosure with two large two-way hides and two pellet bowls (since they got territorial over them). I put Pumba and Pete into their enclosure...

    Reducing Boar Aggression/Testosterone Flare Ups?

    So, my two boys are incredibly typical boars, they’re housed together and get along swimmingly with the usual rumbles and dominance reasserting about 90% of the time.
