Ginea piggies are soft animals and they make an excellent sound but they
has sharp nail we need to be careful when we touch ginea piggies
We are allowed to cut their nails slowly and gently later
put them
in their cages. Sometimes ginea piggies are so noisy. Baby ginea pig are called
cubs.
•Give plenty of water and food so they won’t get hungry
