Life Span:

6-10 years


Guinea Pig Temperament:

Entertaining and gentle, the pet guinea pig is vocal and delightful. They have become very popular pets because of their docile temperaments, tendency not to bite or scratch when handled, relatively clean habits and availability. They are sociable animals and enjoy daily interaction.Guinea pigs are social animals, like horses and wolves, and are best kept in herds of at least two.

Guinea Pig Grooming:

Cages should be cleaned out at least weekly.

Nails should be clipped on a regular basis. Toenails that are not clipped will start to curl back around and grow into the pig’s foot. Short and medium-haired guinea pigs require less grooming, but some very long haired guinea pigs need their coats brushed so they do not get tangled. The coat of the longhair may be very long, draping all around, covering the feet and trailing behind it as much as 6 inches. This type of coat requires regular, careful grooming.
