    My youngest gp is about 7 months old, we have had him since January with my eldest who I believe to be over the age of 3. My youngest has been mounting my eldest to the point he is shoving him in the corner and almost knocking him over. My eldest always tries to get away and has never bit him...

    New Piggies behaviour

    Staring Guinea pig

    Random question: Does anyone's piggie(s) stare at them? My caramel teddy does it all the time. I've gotten used to it and I think she is just waiting for me to move to get some food for her as she is the most receptive to hand feeding and being picked up. I've attached some of my pics where I...

    Is this normal?

    From what I read, I think it is because they are both young (6 months and 4 months) males but I want to double check my specific situation. I got one pig from a family who was going to send him to a rescue when he was about 3 months and he was fairly aggressive and not friendly. After 3 months...

    Male Guinea Pig Bum Sniffing/licking

    I recently got 3 male guinea pigs (Ed, Al, and Mustang) they’re about 5 weeks old. They’re brothers as far as I’m aware, and therefore have been together since birth. I’ve only had them about a week or 2 and recently Mustang has been obsessively sniffing/licking/possibly eating poo from Ed’s...
