Photos Of Guinea Pigs With Beautifully Looking Manes

I know you all would agree guinea pigs are the cutest little balls of fur in the whole world. They make sounds like squealing, chirping, squeaking, purring and sometimes would even growl but whatever sound is made by this animal it is an adorable sound to hear. They are usually very friendly, active, and most sociable animals just like dogs.

Native from the domesticated varieties of rodents from South of America, guinea pigs belongs to the family of the Caviidae/cavy. They have a healthy and strong body with a big head and eyes, short legs and arms, and little ears resemble some cavies while there also exist several other breeds that are sometimes categorized by texture and the length of their hair.

Silkie, Abyssinian and Peruvian guinea pigs are famously recognized for their unique and dignified floor-length fur/hair. Each guinea pig species has five distinct kinds of hair that make up their coat. One important little detail about these little animals is that they are unable to produce their own vitamin C. Therefore, they need to obtain it from their diet, or they would develop scurvy.

It is true that short-haired guinea pigs are much simpler to take care of and groom than long-haired guinea pigs. However, guinea pigs who are long-haired kind of have an adorable cuddly look on them. They are also the more unique looking varieties of guinea pigs and bring on a distinctive look to their coat. If you own a guinea pig with long hair you may know that a great commitment is needed to take care of them and it is a bit of a challenge.

Here are a few photos of guinea pigs with the most beautiful manes ever seen.
