PETS: Guinea Pigs

Guinea pigs are popular pets because of their friendly and docile nature, their hardiness, and they are reasonably easy to maintain. They are known for making a variety of fun noises when excited (chatters, whines, squeals, chirps, whistles, purrs, screams) and sometimes ham it up with a performance called popcorning (small, rapid hops in the air). They are able to bond well over time with humans, often revealing their snuggly, affectionate side. Domesticated guinea pigs enjoy a sense of community and thrive in groups of two or more.
