    Just wanted to share a cool fact i learned about guinea pigs. Did you know that there used to be giant guinea pigs roaming the earth? They were 9 feet tall and could swim in the water (semi-aquatic mammals). They were called the Phoberomys Pattersoni aka "guinea-zilla."

    Another cool fact: through scientific research, guinea pigs helped us discover Vitamin C. Both humans and guinea pigs aren't able to produce vitamin C naturally, so research on the cavy made it possible for us to create an external source of vitamin C!
