yes... mine does at least.


Yes they do. They also sleep with their eyes open sometimes. If you watch them when they sleep you can see them dreaming, as like us, they have rapid eye movement, and occasionally they'll twitch. It's really cute :o)

Do guinea pigs close there eyes?

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.
