Info on guinea pigs and a photo gallery of guinea birds are found on the web. As for reproduction, they breed continuously throughout the year, but most births occur in the spring. Males become sexually mature by the age of three months and females by the age of two months. The estrous cycles last on average about 16.5 days. An average litter size is 3-4 young. They are born rather large, furred and with open eyes. The young are able to eat solid food when only 2 or 3 days old, though they nurse for 2-3 weeks. These animals are very sociable and will appreciate the company of others. That is why, it is recommended to buy at least two cavies of the same sex.

Info On Guinea Pigs

Earlier, these animals were found from northwestern Venezuela to central Chile and were kept as pets by the native people. Traders and colonists subsequently brought Cavia porcellus to Europe and America. Nowadays, they do not exist in the wild, but may be kept as pets. They are rather healthy animals; however they can also be prone to some health problems. The specific symptoms of a disease in an animal are not eating, crusty eyes, blood in the pee, squeaking while peeing, diarrhea, drooling, weight loss, bloat, or hair loss. If you’ve noticed any of these signs, you’d better turn to a veterinarian. Info on guinea pigs and a photo gallery of guinea birds are found on the web.
