Different Types of Guinea Pig Breeds

The Himalayan Guinea Pig

The Himalayan guinea pig is really a remarkable breed and is called the siamese cats of guinea pigs. If you can get your hands on one, I would strongly recommend it. Despite their looks, they aren’t as uncommon as you’d expect.

Not only are they considered albino, but they are proven to have color (usually black) on their noises, feets and ears (called “points”). I would recommend this breed if you stay in a place without sunlight and heat.

The things will actually start to vanish if it is exposed to a lot fo sunlight. Apart from those factors, these are relatively easy guinea pigs to raise because of their short fur coat.
