    Just to let you know Guinea pigs need to be kept in pairs they are social animals like rats so if you are keeping it you need to look into getting a buddy. If you can not get another it would be best to rehome him with somone who already has piggies.

    Here's a good information and rescue site:

    http://www.guineapighome.com/

    It looks like males may fight unless they were introduced to each other when young. You just have to see if a pair of males get along otherwise.

    The reason for the noise is you NEED two of them to keep happy or they will have not such a good life. I have had tons of them and I have a friend in california that breds them. They love vegis and alfalfa hay.

    Twice in my life, somebody holding a guinea pig walked up and said "hold this" putting it in my lap. I was bit both times.



    They probably know that I am fond of rodent -eating snakes......

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Maybe he thinks he is a capyberra, flopping around in the water..

    How could you feed your PET RAT to a snake!! That's horrible! I feel bad for the snake but I'm glad the ratty made it. That's why you shouldn't feed LIVE rats/mice to snakes, the snake could get hurt! Tanger is still doing great! He's not going to get a buddy, I spend tons of time with him and he's always purring and chutting. I also heard that two males MIGHT fight, but we can't get him a buddy anyway, and I'm certainly not going to rehome him just because he doens't have a play mate. Jeff and I are going out to pick him up a toy today MAYBE in the future he'll have a buddy, but definetly not now. Thanks for the info Xvart! How did you know!!! Tanger has scabs all over him, looks like he got into some fights with something. He's doing great though, really loves his apples
    Great Googly Moogly!

    Beware of the yellow snow!
