A little more domestic than my usual subject matter! This past weekend was my daughter’s turn to bring the class pet home from school. Enter Nibbles, the guinea pig.

The guinea pig or cavy is a domesticated descendant of rodents that originated in the Andes of South America. Domestic guinea pigs have been popular pets fro hundreds of years. They are relatively easy to care for and have a docile and friendly nature. As the pet for a primary school class of almost 30 nine year old children, Nibbles is very used to being handled.
