Fur, Feathers & Scales - Guinea Pig

Meet Neville! This little cutie is a guinea pig. Guinea pigs come from South America, where they are raised for food. (Shhhh! Don't tell Neville!)

They are strictly herbivores, eating grasses, fruits and vegetables.  They are also rodents, so they have big front incisors that are always growing longer.

Guinea pigs are popular pets.  They are easy to care for and don't really require any much more than basic care. They are pretty messy though, so daily clean up is usually necessary. 

They have no tails and make the cutest little noises.  They squeal when they're excited and even purr when they're happy.  So cute!


  1. How cute! I knew they made noises, but I didn't know they were happy and excited noises!! Adorable :)

    1. It's ridiculous how cute they are--especially when they are in a group and start squealing!
