No! Really, no! It is a guinea pigs natural instinct to sleep with it's eyes open because in the wild they had to watch for predators and always be alert. A guinea pig will only sleep with his/her eyes closed if they are extremely content or they feel safe.
usually when a guinea pig dies its eyes are open, but if it died sleeping then its eyes should be closed.
Yes, hamsters do close their eyes when they sleep. Or at least mine does....
cool If your guinea pig is lying on it's side it usually means that it is sleeping. Since guinea pigs can't close their eyes for more then ten minutes, you can tell if its sleeping when it lays on it's side and is poking it's leg out. If the guinea pig is sleeping a lot and not eating then the room it is in is too for it and you should probably move it's cage to a colder room in the house.
Yes, they do.
yes of course they do! All mammals open and close their eyes! Yes. Guinea pigs will close their eyes if they sleep, (even though they do sleep sometimes with their eyes open) feel the need to shut them, or if they blink. Guinea pigs do not blink as often as other animals, we think this is because guinea pigs need to always look out for predators and their eyes do water more than other animal eyes do.
fish dont have eyelids
no, they are awake the just close there eyes
yes they do well mine does and they close their eyes if they are tired -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Really? It's physically impossible for a guinea pig to do this.
Your piggy will lay on its side and close his eyes. It is rare that you see them sleep because they sleep in 6 minutes intervales. Most of the time they're awake and playing.
Hi , You can tel when a guinea pig is sleeping because they usually lay flat (so nno bones are standing) and their eyes are usually closed. They sleep on their side or up usually.
They might have a eye infection.
if their eyes r close. and if its a man or a woman by snoring. then you can teal their are sleeping.
Nope. They close their eyes like many other animals while sleeping.
Onions make guinea pigs eyes sting too, just like it makes ours. The guinea pig is simply keeping its eyes from the sting of the onion.
Yes they do i have gone on a stake out and found that deer close their eyes!!??!!>>>
take a sleeping pill....and then LAY DOWN/CLOSE YOUR EYES AND SLEEP!!
No. They don't have eyelids or any structure like it.
Expirement. close your eyes for a good 10 seconds. Then open them and get close to a mirror when you do this. When you open your eyes, you'll notice that your pupils will get big and then really small(fast).
Closing a dead person's eyes is tradition so they look more at peace and comfortable, as if they were sleeping.
They sleep with one eye open (source: David Attenborough)
Either it's died or it's sleeping!!
No. But be sure not to take a picture with a flash real close because it could hurt their eyes if it is to close.
Manatees have a nictitating membrane (like an alligator has) which protects its eyes. Manatees will close their eyes when sleeping. They hover or lay on the bottom and when they need a breath they will rise to the surface, take a breath and then settle back down to the bottom without ever waking up.
