I quickly Googled guinea pig babies and came up with quite surprising facts: a guinea pig baby born to a sow, is called a pup. It's born with its eyes open and can run around immediately.
I took photos of the mother and babies in the cardboard box to send to granddaughter, Eryn in Mozambique
On Saturday morning, Thandiwe called me and showed me that the other sow had also had two babies. Just as wide-eyed and mobile. I'm handling the babies as much as possible so that they will know my touch. The older guinea pigs are still wary of me!
I'll get more photos of the new guinea pig pups as soon as possible.
Oh, and Apple Blossom (a special breed guinea pig) is hugely pregnant. I'm expecting her to have her pups soon.
I'm linking my post to Saturday Critters here
HAPPY SATURDAY TO YOU ALL!
