well i have had this question answered before but i forgot a detail

my pig Chewie is the oldest i have (2-3 months at best) so still quite small
and he runs around a lot when i have him on the sofa, sometimes he will do this super fast running between my girlfriend and i back and forth like a rally race, ive determined this is play. i think

during this it seems that he tries to popcorn but he does something thats only best described as a horse bucking for a moment in mid jump, it was funny when i saw it...actually still is but i just want to make sure this is a happy action before i miss a chance to see something wrong

do guinea pigs each have their own way of popcorning? my piggies dont squeak or wheek when they popcorn though....

anyone know what exactly he is doing?

thanks!

oh right, also forgot one more thing...

his wheeks are quite different from the younger guinea pigs,

they wheek very clearly and such, Chewie wheeks like maybe hes been to a concert or something, its somewhat clear but the sound is not as....consistent ? as the other wheeks i hear.

something to worry about?

hes my best lil boy, i want to make sure none of this is a red light....

thanks again everyone

Sounds like popcorning to me :) I've seen our girls do full backflips and barrel rolls a few times.
