Originally, these animals came from South America; some species still live there in the wild. Cavies appeared about 18 million years ago. They were probably first domesticated by the Indians of Peru. In some countries the meat of these animals is thought to be healing as the animals themselves are thought to be mystical beings. In the 16th century Dutch explorers introduced these cute rodents to Europe. In the 19th Century these animals were being exhibited at shows in the UK. Nowadays they are widely used as pets.

aviaries, photo

In the wild, these animals are herbivores and live in areas where grasses and other vegetation are readily available. In their natural habitat, these animals usually breed once a year, although one species breeds continually throughout the year under good conditions. When kept as pets, they should be supplied with high quality food. Feed your pet a complete diet with high levels of crude protein. The species likes lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, pea pods, pears, apples, oranges, peaches, etc. Also, pay attention to such keeping requirements as a roomy cage, fresh water, and regular veterinary care. Responsible breeders usually supply buyers with veterinarian contacts. When researching what they eat, guinea pig owners should visit breeder and small pet sites, not to be confused with aviaries, and look at photo collections.
