These animals are hystricomorph rodents. They originated from the Andes Mountains region of South America. It is considered that they were probably first domesticated by the Indians of Peru, who used them for food and as sacrificial offerings to their gods. In the wild, cavies live in open, grassy areas. They use naturally protected areas or burrows deserted by other animals as shelters. These are highly social animals and in the wild they gather together in herds for survival; while the whole herd feeds the one animal is on guard. There is a strict ranking in the heard; a single dominant male is the head of a harem of females and their youth. A guinea pig photo pales in comparison to a picture of a baby.
