I can absolutely relate! I've had one of my old males, Jojo, for more than 12 months now, and I caught a first popcorn the other morning (well, more of a sideways step and butt-waggle, as he's not as sprightly as he once was) :)

It absolutely made my day. Lovely to have happy piggies!

It's called popcorn because the piggy will suddenly jump around like a piece of corn popping. It's really cute to watch, have a search on YouTube for a video, it's really funny. XD

I love it when my boys do it, and when they zoom around their cage. One of them was running around at top speed yesterday and the other was following with a look on his face like he didn't know why he was running, but he was. Then they both collapsed on their sides in the hay pile for a rest.
