Top Ten Coolest Rodents


The Top Ten

1 Guinea Pig Guinea Pig The guinea pig, also called the cavy or domestic guinea pig, is a species of rodent belonging to the family Caviidae and the genus Cavia.

My Guinea pigs are named Pretzel and Pumpkin they are both males, they fight a lot, but they are beautiful Pumpkin is a short-hared calico and Pretzel is a cinder/brown/cream long-haired Peruvian. I love them and they are better than hamsters because they live longer, are more cuddly, come in more colors, they can be trained to squeak for food, and can be trained like a dog if spent enough time.

They are not cool! They suck and are fat, lazy cowards!
