    I am someone who is new at taking care of guinea pigs. I have two males and as I was doing research on what a "healthy" guinea pig should look like, I noticed a brown/pink spot on my guinea pig's ear. Is this normal or should I go to a vet soon? Thanks

    That looks like the coloring of his ear to me.

    Looks like a normal ear to me.

    But since you're new to pigs, here's a crash course in behavior and general and medical care: https://www.guineapigcages.com/forum...nea-pig-owners

    Yes. It's fine.

    Google "guinea pigs" and click on Images. You'll see thousands of guinea pigs of every possible color pattern
