Guinea Pigs


Guinea Pigs are easy-going rodents that originated from South America. The guinea pig, also known as a cavy, is one of the few small animal pets that might enjoy sitting on the lap of its owner. Guinea pigs have distinctive vocalizations and weigh approximately 2 pounds. The American Cavy Breeders Association recognizes 13 breeds, which all belong to the Cavia porcellus species.
