Peekin' out of the Christmas decorations

Thanks to Rebecca on flickr for this image of Pigbert.

Guinea pigs are native to the Andes. Europeans started keeping them as pets in the 16th century. They weigh 1 ½ to 2 ½ pounds and are about 8 to 10 inches long. They live an average of 4 years. Baby guinea pigs are called pups.
