    New Pig

    Hello, I adopted a 7 month old male guinea pig named Norman. I have never owned one before and should have done my research before purchasing but am making up for lost time by purchasing the guinea pig handbook and watching little adventures on youtube. Since watching many of these videos I...

    Mixed Signals: Troublemaker Personality Or Genuinely Angry?

    So I got my piggy Lieutenant Dan (aka Dan Halen) a few months ago (he may be an Abyssinian? He is my profile photo)) and even though he's still young and likely hormonal, I'm not sure if his current behaviors are just his young personality or if it sounds like he is actually not content. So...

    Racing Stripes

    My baby boars have easily slipped into their dominant and submissive roles, Hannibal is very content to let Batista climb on him and generally take charge and assert himself, and Batista loves being the top dog. They also seem to be very good at sharing, they like to sleep together and...
