Popcorn Day

Jan 19

IT'S POPCORN DAY, PIGGIES! BUTTER OR NOT, THERE THEY GO! 🍿🍿🍿

Does your guinea pig still popcorn?!! <br>'Popcorning' is the name for an unusual behaviour that many guinea pigs exhibit, which involves them running backwards and forwards rapidly, jumping into the air over and over again. Some cavies will throw themselves straight up in the air, while some will alternately kick their front and back legs out, almost like a bucking bronco. Often they will make a squeaking sound at the same time! Popcorning is particularly common in young babies, and is something that both boars and sows do. Adult guinea pigs popcorn as well, although generally not as often, and they don't jump as high as the youngsters. <br>Get your guinea pig in the mood to popcorn by playing the classic hit remake "Popcorn" from 1972, by Hot Butter (of course): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gv21qY_AcS4 <br>#wheekwheek #popcorn
