More about
Guinea pigs​

Guinea pigs are herbivores and require a diet that is high in fiber, such as hay, grass, and vegetables. They are gentle and easy to handle, which makes them popular pets for children and adults alike. Guinea pigs are also very social animals and should be kept in pairs or small groups to prevent loneliness and depression.
There are many different breeds of guinea pigs, each with its unique appearance and temperament. Some of the most popular breeds include the Abyssinian, the Peruvian, and the American. These breeds can vary in size, with some reaching up to 12 inches in length and weighing up to 3 pounds.
Guinea pigs have a unique digestive system that includes a special type of digestive bacteria called cecotropes. These cecotropes are produced in the cecum, a specialized part of the guinea pig’s digestive tract, and are eaten by the guinea pig to extract additional nutrients from their food.
Like all animals, guinea pigs face many threats in the wild, including predators such as hawks, foxes, and snakes. Domestic guinea pigs also face risks such as poor living conditions and neglect, which can lead to health problems and shortened lifespans.
