    Boars finally in same enclosure!

    Hi! I'm hoping to get some insight into how things are actually going with two adolescent boar skinny pigs! We started with a 6 month old boar named Baldwin who, after some time in his new home, really flourished. But it became very clear that he needed a friend to love with! After searching for...

Tupac is the one we had for a couple of weeks and is 1 and Biggie, the one we got today, is a little younger. They were introduced and Tupac immediately starting mounting him. We eventually put...

    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...

    So, here's the situation: We have two guinea pigs (males), they've always been together (they're two years old). They behave normally, although we noticed that the alpha is mounting the other pig pretty often - but it was never anything dangerous for piggies. We have decided to adopt a new...
