These mammals belong to the rodent family. They live for 4-6 years on average. They are rodents and the word 'rodent' stems from the Latin word 'rodere' which means 'to gnaw.' These cute rodents are also known as cavies. They are kept as pets and originate from South America where the natives used the species as a source of food and it is still considered a delicacy today. The Spanish found Andean Indians had domesticated these animals. In the 1500's, Dutch sailors introduced these rodents to Europe and in the 1770's, cavies reached the United States as pets. Information about guinea pigs and photos may be found at a breeder.
