The first cavies were domesticated in 5000 B.C. by the Incas. First domesticated animals were probably used not as pets, but as food. Dutch merchants brought these rodents to Europe, where they became popular pets with noble men. In the early 1900ís, these animals were brought to the United States by British immigrants. These animals have a friendly temperament, they do not bite, they do not jump or climb and their babies are born fully developed, with fur, teeth and their eyes open, they are easy and fun to breed. Peruvian guinea pigs and birds are popular not only in that country but around the world; a pet bird may be prone to squaks and loud noises.
