With rats, when they sneeze, it's normally-harmless plasma in their lungs. Guinea Pigs might be the same. Recent changing of the litter in the cage or a new litter can cause your little pet to sneeze. If you notice anything out of the ordinary, or if it's a persistent sneeze, then go see a vet.

Is a guinea pig a predator?

Guinea pigs are herbivores, this means they eat vegetation. Their main food source is grass, not other animals. Predators eat other animals (or living things) called prey. Guinea pigs are classed as prey, because they are a lot smaller than many predators who would like to eat them. However, it should be noted that whilst domestic guinea pigs will not eat other animals, guinea pigs should not be housed with other animal species. This is because guinea pigs can be susceptible to diseases other animals may carry.
