Ok, so I have two female guinea pigs, Kona and Panda. Kona is about 15 months old, and Panda is around 8-9 months. Anyway, I got Panda from a rescue that required me to bring Kona to make sure they'd be a match. Kona, from the beginning, even at the rescue, would rumblestrut to assert her dominance. She's done this multiple times a day, every day, since I've gotten Panda. Panda, every once in a while, would randomly start mounting Kona to assert her dominance, but it would die off pretty fast. I double, triple, quadruple checked, and they are both girls. Recently, Panda's has started rumble strutting as well, something I attributed to her coming into maturity (I've had her since August) and being tired of Kona pushing her around. For a while, she was doing it quite a bit more than Kona, but now they are doing it together. They rumble strut and and wag their butts and wipe them on the floor. Their hackles are raised as well. The part that's throwing me off is that they start popcorning in the middle of it all. They don't do it in unison, just randomly. Sometimes, one will be popcorning and then they start this elaborate rumble strutting nonsense. What is going on here? I thought popcorning was an excitement/happiness thing, and rumble strutting was an "I'm the boss," thing.
