    Help not sure what this is !

    I got Him a few months ago and noticed a balding spot and it is black. Doesn?t seem to bother him though.

    That bald spot behind the ears is normal for all pigs; they just don't grow hair there. And I think that black is just the color of his skin.

    Guinea pigs naturally have bald patches behind their ears. The black is the color of its skin under its fur. It's nothing to worry about.
