In their wild state they are more active during dawn and dusk, when it is difficult for predators to spot them. If frightened, they can run for cover with unexpected speed. In the wild these animals live for 4-6 years. Wild cavies usually breed once a year, although one species breeds continually throughout the year under good conditions. Domestic cavies breed up to 5 times a year. Their litters normally consist of two to four young. The young are born in an advanced state of development. They are able to feed themselves by nibbling foliage the day after birth and are weaned and ready to leave their parents at four weeks of age.

Care For Guinea Pigs

pictures, breeder

In the wild these animals are found on grassy plains. They live in small groups or herds. These animals are not herbivores, they are omnivores. In the wild they feed on various grasses, seeds, weeds, bugs, grubs, and fruit. In captivity these animals' food is made of pelleted alfalfa with other grains. Do not feed your cavy rabbit food. You may think that these animalsí diets are alike; however, cavies have different nutritional needs. You should also provide your cavy with a constant daily supply of hay. Timothy, alfalfa, oat, sweet grass, and meadow grass are all very good addition to the diet. To learn how to care for guinea pigs or just browse pictures for free, visit a breeder and request it.
