The way of communication of the Cavia is very recognizable. The beeps as soon as the refrigerator opens and the cheerful look when he sees you with a treat. Magnificent! Guinea pigs are very friendly animals that live in groups. At our home, a guinea pig should never be kept alone. Always at least two Guinea pigs.
Guinea pigs are rodents and their favorite pastime is "eating". Every guinea pig enthusiast 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 appendix (night droppings). We call this behavior "Coprophagy". These are softer, green droppings that the animals eat immediately. These droppings are often not found in the residence. They contain a lot of good bacteria, proteins and vitamins K and B.
Guinea pigs are very sociable 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 to take into account. Guinea pigs, for example, are real social animals and should therefore not be kept alone, but always together with a similar person. The guinea pig makes demands on its diet, for example, guinea pigs should always have access to fresh hay to nibble on and thus keep their digestion going.
The stay must be spacious. The size of the enclosure depends on the number of guinea pigs that are kept together.
