She's active, popcorns, eats and drinks and acts compeltely normal but her mouth is black? What's the problem? It's just her mouth area and not much but its a noticable dark black color around her mouth, she acts completely normal, she purs, plays and eats/drinks.

I also noticed she does some sneezing sound or something like that i cant really explain it, but i hear it about once every day?

Hi Peep welcome to the family :)

When you say her mouth is black do you mean her piggy lips?its just that one of our piggies has pink lips but our piggy has half and half black and pink its really weird like half his top and half his bottom lip are pink and the other halves are pink

Ours "sneeze" frequently sometimes when they are eating and other times when I think hay gets up their nose - if your piggy is acting normally etc I would just keep an eye on her

Someone with more piggy knowledge will be along soon

Yea it's her lips. I only find it weird because her nose is pink and she's an orange/white fur guinea pig. I'll keep an eye over her and if I notice something wrong I'll see the vet right away but she's eating hay and grass/lettuce and drinking so I assume she's ok.

If they've always been black, that's just her coloring. Unlike people, guinea pigs skin isn't always the same color all over. It's the same as hair, our hair is all the same color but they can be piebald.
