Photo by author Guinea pigs have very good hearing. They're also very good at recognizing sounds that are associated with getting food.

I adopted these boys almost two years ago. They were geriatric and in need of a retirement home. Zippy (the darker coloured one)… Continue reading 2018 year in review: Guinea pigs
