Fudge has got a small brown lump same size as a freckle mid way up his body. Would this be a belly button or a mole?

Google says they do as they are mammals. I'm wonder as Fudge is a brown pig and his belly button is brown if my black pigs and white pigs will have buttons which match their fur. Hmmmm I'm off to check my other piggies

I never thought about a guinea pig having a belly button before!

My little Archie has one too :). Haven't noticed it on my girls though, but they are older and have more hair on their tummies.

Definitely a belly button - all mammals have belly buttons (umbilicus), unless they're a duck-bill platypus x
