How Much Does a Guinea Pig Cost?

Despite its name, a guinea pig is not a pig nor is it from Guinea.  This animal is rather one of the rodent species belonging to the family Caviidae and the genus Cavia.

Also called a cavy, the guinea pig is said to have originated from the Andes.  According to studies, the guinea pig is an important food and medicine source among many South American cultures.  It also plays a vital role in their community religious ceremonies.  These gentle and sociable creatures also make great pets for kids.  Although they tend to be shy at first when meeting with humans, guinea pigs are quick to develop intense affection with their pet parents.  They are usually able to be held and can even get out of its cage to play once in a while.
