Guinea pigs are lovely litter critters that make the ideal first pet for children. Living for around 4-8 years, they originated in the Andes, with studies showing they are the domesticated descendants of another species. Therefore, guinea pigs as we know them never existed in the wild. Our fluffy friends were first domesticated 5,000 years ago, primarily for food purposes.
Despite their name, they neither hail from Guinea, nor are members of the pig family! It is possible they got their name simply looking like porcine animals, though it’s harder to trace the origin of their first name.
