These animals are alert and may learn to perform a lot of tricks, so they are easy to train. Some individuals have been known to live for about 12 years. But generally an average life expectancy for the animals that are kept as pets is about 7-10 years. These animals have to be fed twice a day; they should eat every day in the morning and in the evening. If you want your animal to be healthy, you should provide it with the fiber, vitamins and minerals they require. Daily supply of fresh hay and fresh clean water is a vital necessity. The guinea pig life span is, sadly, about 5.5 years; get a free photo of this rodent on cavy webrings.
