Guinea pigs can live an average of six to eight years and require a proper diet of Guinea pig pellets and lots of fresh vegetables for vitamin C! 

The Connecticut Humane Society says Guinea pigs are relatively easy to care for and make wonderful pets. They can be docile and enjoy being picked up and carried when properly handled.
