Introduction

General information

  • One of the oldest breeds of guinea pigs.
  • A Peruvian has very long hair and can reach up to a foot in length!
  • Pups are born with short hair which grows around an inch each month until it reaches adulthood.
  • They require a lot of grooming; if the guinea pig is not a show animal, the hair can be trimmed to keep it tidy and to remove any knots/matted areas.
