Guinea Pig Habitats

[an error occurred while processing this directive]

Guinea pig habitats should be small and provide for everything the creature may need; look at photos of what other people have set-up for their pets; a farm is a good place to start your research. In captivity a cage with walls 30 cm high, open on top and having a minimum floor area of 3,000 square cm will be enough for one animal. A pair of animals will demand more space. The cage should be made of wood, plastic or metal. Donít use cedar; it is very dangerous for these animals. You can either buy a cage or just make it by yourself, what is not difficult at all. In summer, you may take your cavies outside, but in this case they will need a hutch and a wire run. You can also fence off a small patch of your lawn and let them have a play area there.

In the wild these animals live in open, grassy areas. They seek shelter in naturally protected areas or other animals abandoned burrows. In the wild these sociable creatures live in small family groups. These groups usually consist of one dominant sexually mature male and several females. The females in the group develop a dominance hierarchy. These animals are plant-eaters and do most of their foraging for grasses, roots, fruits and seeds in the late afternoon and early evening. In captivity, their diet should be supplied with food that contains fair amounts of calcium, phosphorous, magnesium and potassium and avoid feeding the pet table scrapes. Guinea pig habitats should be small and provide for everything the creature may need; look at photos of what other people have set-up for their pets; a farm is a good place to start your research.
