Guinea pigs are those adorable squiggly pets with extended noses. A few fast facts: – Guinea pigs are not pigs nor are they from the Republic of Guinea. They are rodents originally from the Andes. – A baby guinea pig is called a ‘pup’. – They use purring as a sign of happiness. – Gestation period, or the length of pregnancy, is about 70 days. – Their teeth are open rooted, which means they are constantly growing, so they have to munch on something regularly to grind them down. – There are places around the world, America included and most notoriously South America, that serve them as cultural delicacies.
