The way of communicating the Cavia is very recognizable. The beeps as soon as the refrigerator opens and the cheerful look when he sees you with some treats. Magnificent! Guinea pigs are very friendly animals that live in groups. A Guinea pig should therefore never be kept alone at our home. Always at least two guinea pigs.
Guinea pigs are rodents and their favorite activity is "eating". Every cavia lover will agree! As with all rodents, the teeth of the guinea pig always continue to grow. High-quality gnawing material and good nutrition are therefore essential for the animals.
Guinea pigs are also true herbivores, that is, their diet consists of plants. Like many rodents, guinea pigs also eat their caecum (night droppings). We call this behavior "Coprophagia". These are softer, green droppings that eat the animals directly. These toys are often not found in the residence. They contain a lot of good bacteria, proteins and vitamins K and B.
Guinea pigs are very nice animals that can keep their owner company for up to 10 years. Guinea pigs have an average life expectancy of between five and seven years.
The guinea pig is not a very demanding animal, but there are things that should be taken into account. For example, guinea pigs are true social animals and should therefore not be kept alone, but always with a species of their own. The guinea pig makes demands on its diet, so guinea pigs must always have access to fresh hay to nibble on and keep their digestion going.
The accommodation must be spacious. The size of the enclosure depends on the number of guinea pigs that are kept together.
