Guinea Pigs

A Guinea Pig is built somewhat like a pig, with a large head relative to the body, stout neck, and rounded rump with no tail of any consequence; some of the sound it emits is very similar to that made by a pig, and they also spend a large amount of time eating. Guinea pigs are large for rodents, weighing between 700 and 1200g and measuring between 20 - 25 cm in length. They typically live an average go 4 - 5 years, but may live as long as 8 years.
