Cavies are small rodents with short, rounded ears and no tails. They have strong hands with 4 fairly equal fingers. Their feet are 3-toed and plantigrade except when moving fast. They are rather large for rodents; adult cavies are 10-12 inches in length, with an average height of 4 inches and average weight of about 2 pounds. These animals are omnivores. In the wild they feed on grasses, seeds, weeds, bugs, grubs and fruit. Their diet should also contain Vitamin C as they can not produce their own. Daily supply of fresh water is also necessary. The guinea pig life expectancy is only 4 - 7 years; this rodent is very photogenic; snap a picture and see for yourself.
