Guinea Pigs (Cavia Porcellus) are a social animal, which means they should always have company. They are sweet, intelligent, and unlike the myth that they do not play. In fact a really playful and happy guinea pig will delight you with their antic of pop corning! They will not only amuse and entertain you but most importantly they will be happy themselves. They will play inside tunnels, shake plastic balls with bells inside and love to curl up in a cozy cat basket.
