This is our first non-Christmas guinea pig post! It’s also our first guinea pig post to include a baby one! In case you weren’t aware, guinea pigs are also called cavies and they don’t actually come from New Guinea, but from the Andes in South America.
Guinea pigs are truly adorable. In fact, Blue Bear used to have a pair of guinea pigs named Plum and Pepper. They were a lot of fun to play with. I bet these two little cavies in the image are also lots of fun to have around.
Quick Update: The original photographer of this picture popped by recently and let us know that the mother guinea pig in this photo is in fact NOT the mother of the baby, and that this is her first experience with a young guinea pig. She looks like she’s doing a GREAT job, and loves this little baby just as much as if she were its mother. Thanks for letting us know, Nicole.
