Guinea Pigs Mounting Each Other

Guinea pigs make great pets. They’re easy to take care of and don’t need a lot, but they have different personalities. We have four of them. Every so often, they have the strangest behaviors. I got a couple of pictures last week and Molly finally got them from her camera, so here they are.

Once in a while, they make a rumbling sound and chase each other around. I’m uncertain if it is sexual or if it’s a dominance thing, but they try to mount each other. I happened to have the camera in my hand last week when Blackie decided to chase Teddy around the cage then mount her. I thought I’d share the picture.
