Guinea pigs, also called as cavies, are a domesticated species of rodent. They were originally native to South America. Their average lifespan is 4 to 8 years. They weigh about 700g to 1.2kg and length is approximately 20cm to 26cm.
Guinea pigs diet include pellets, hays, fresh vegetables, vitamins and water. Generally, guinea pig is a gentle, docile, rodent.
ASK YOURSELF THIS FEW QUESTIONS:
1. Am I acquiring a guinea pig on impulse?
2. Do I have sufficient time for one?
3. Can I really afford to pay for their living and medical expenses for up to 8years?
4. Am I allergic to guinea pig?
Having a pet is a Long-Term Commitment, do consider carefully before making the decision on one.
