- For Pigs' Sake
I had a full blown view of humping last night. I'm still a bit traumatised actually. Poor Pipi being humped by Kaka several times. Kaka didn't even give it up. I know this is normal behaviour hence I just monitored it. But with Pipi's condition, it must be hard for him. Pipi kept screaming and I just gave Kaka evil stares to quit it. This happened the whole night.
I rolled a towel with Pipi's smell so Kaka can leave him alone but nothing happened. Maybe I'll try to pick a plush toy that I can put there. *stressed*
We were quite honestly worried that he might hump himself into heat stroke, but after that first morning there hasn't been much of that sort of thing.
I, too, almost spit my Dr. Pepper all over my desk!We were quite honestly worried that he might hump himself into heat stroke
We've all seen those nature shows where they show wildlife mating and the most common method of mating is via humping (ever notice how fun the word 'hump' is?). So why is guinea pig humping, especially for determining who's boss, so funny to us humans? I don't know......
I thought maybe I was weird....now I see that I'm not the only one.
Even though this thread is about boars behaving badly I can tell you my two ladies are no angels when it comes to determining who's boss. Star (3-4 years old, 3 lbs.) humps the snot out of Jessica (10 months old, 2.5 lbs.) every time she's in heat.
Guinea pig homes....where every day is hump day, not just Wednesdays!

When I brought Doom home from the vet after he was diagnosed with cancer in his chest, that was making him wheeze, the first thing he had to do was race around and hump his wives.
The second thing he had to do was stop and catch his breath.
Last night Romeo got very excited hearing the rustle of plastic bags and Ross and Chandler popcorning in their cages. He put on quite a popping squeaking show. I couldn't stop laughing. It was too cute!
George's main issue now is his distrust of people. He's getting a lot better, but we're still working on winning him over. As he seems to get more comfy with us, in turn he doesn't take out his problems on Romeo.
Maybe they will work out as a pair after all.

I'd like to chyme in that my Matilda thinks she's a big bad boar on a daily basis, she can rumblestrutt with the best of them and even after over two years of happily living together she still has to come out of whatever pigloo she's occupying at random times through the day and rumble around the entire cage! I'm going to have to get it on video because it's quite funny, Clair will just continue to lay in her pigloo and just watches her go around as if to say "oh lord here we go again"
Matilda is rumbling "i'm the biggest, i'm the badest" shaking her booty all around the 2x4.
So as you have said it isn't just boars who do this!
We're watching some sappy lifetime-esque crying movie the other day, and the main character is getting ready to die and we're all sniffling, Roger goes "BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR" at the TV.
