My piggy will try to bite you if you touch his belly when you are picking him up. if you just put your hand under him he will try and bite you if you push it just a little he will try and bite you. Do any of you know what this is? Help A.S.A.P please. Thanks in advance.

They could just not like having their bellies touched. Some pigs don't like having their rump touched, so it could be the same situation. If he starts to make noises like he is in pain, then I would be concerned.

Is this behavior new? has he ever done it before? Or is the biting new?

Have a look at this page for more information on biting https://www.cavyspirit.com/biting.htm and work through which reason could be leading to him biting you, and see how you can help that (changing the way you pick him up so he feels safe, treating him for mites etc).

It was new, it was just a little bit (I think he had to go potty). He now isn't doing that anymore.
