Guinea Pigs
We guinea pigs are in the mammal family and are native to South America

No one is quite sure how we got our name. Some say that guinea pigs were found in the South American country of Dutch Guiana and that sailors bringing them to Europe called them "guiana pigs." Another story says that guinea pigs were sold at the market for one guinea. No one except we guinea pigs know the real reason for our name and we are all sworn not to tell. It is an ancient guinea pig secret handed down from parents to children.

Guinea pigs are wonderful, friendly and lovable animals. (not that We're biased, mind you - but it is the truth!) We come in many colors and with many hair styles.

We make wonderful pets and loyal friends.
