I noticed that my guinea pig went to poo the other day and then all of a sudden his butt went up in the air then curled under. Then he bent over and stuck his head under himself (like he was going to eat his poo) but then when he moved there was like half a poo there and he hadn't eaten it. I there something wrong? He is fine otherwise. I have seen him do it twice now. Any comments?

My boys eat half of the poop and let the rest drop most of the time.

Yeah, I've only had my pig for a few days but I noticed that he did the same thing the first time he used his litter pan. My first thought was "oh yeah, that's gotta taste realy good I'm sure hahaha" *says with sarcasm!*

Fortunately my pig is long-haired so I'm spared from seeing exactly what he's doing. Sounds like I'm not missing much...
