As I've been looking through other people photo's of their
guinea pigs,
I've noticed a lot of people are a bit uneducated about
the different breeds and varieties of cavies.

Breeds: Classified by fur texture and type.

Varieties: Classified by color and pattern.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________

THE BREEDS: (These are the breeds recognized by
ACBA (american cavy breeders association))

:bulletblue: America: Americans are the most
common, they have short hair that lays flat and
has a smooth silky texture.

:bulletblue: American Satin: Exactly like the
american but with sheen (it's hard to tell the
satins apart from their normal coated breed,
may need to ask a professional for help.)

:bulletblue: Teddy: Teddies have short hair
that stands up straight. Their fur is rough and
dense feeling. It doesn't feel smooth like most
cavies, it has a very brittle texture.

:bulletblue: Teddy Satin: Exactly like the teddy
but with sheen (it's hard to tell the satins apart
from their normal coated breed, may need to
ask a professional for help.)

:bulletblue: Abyssinian: This breed has short hair
with many rosettes. Rosettes are points in the coat
where hair radiates from that center point. They
have lots of hair that sticks up straight like a
Mohawk. Smooth soft texture.

:bulletblue: Abyssinian Satin: Exactly like the
Abyssinian but with sheen (it's hard to tell the
satins apart from their normal coated breed,
may need to ask a professional for help.)

:bulletblue: Coronet: This is a long haired
breed with fur sweeping out from the cheeks,
sides, and rump. They have smooth silky fur.
They have one rosette on the top of their head;
a little circle with hair coming from it.

:bulletblue: Peruvian: A long haired breed with
fur coming from the cheeks, sides, and rump.
Smooth silky fur, and a part down the middle
of their hair.

:bulletblue: Peruvian Satin: Exactly like the
peruvian but with sheen (it's hard to tell the
satins apart from their normal coated breed,
may need to ask a professional for help.)

:bulletblue: Silkie: A long haired breed with
fur coming from the cheeks, sides, and rump.
They have a sweep of fur that comes from
their head and extends over their back called
a frontal. Smooth silky fur.

:bulletblue: Silkie Satin: Exactly like the silkie
but with sheen (it's hard to tell the satins apart
from their normal coated breed, may need to
ask a professional for help.)

:bulletblue: Texel: Long haired breed
distinguished by their curly ringlets. Fur a
slightly rougher in texture.

:bulletblue: White Crested: A short haired breed
whose fur lies flat and smooth. Distinguished by
one white circle of hair on the top of their head.

:iconvioletrose1plz::iconvioletrose2plz::iconvioletrose3plz::iconvioletrose4plz::iconvioletrose5plz::iconvioletrose6plz:

Hello, and welcome! This is a group made for anything and everything guinea pig related! All are welcome to join, even if you don't own a cavy.
Our goal is to get all our members involved, provide useful information on cavies, and have lots of photo's art and more for everyone to enjoy! We encourage everyone to share about their cavies and show off their pictures.

Though it's a downer, we do have to have a few easy, but necessary rules, so bare with me.

:bulletblue: Please don't join if your not going to be active! If you really only want to see the pictures then just watch the group, we want all our members to be contributing.
:bulletblue: DON'T SPAM!!! I love seeing lot of pictures of cavies, but to many is annoying to anyone watching the group. I'm not going to put a limit, but please be aware of how much your submitting.
:bulletblue: Be respectful to the other members, no insulting! I don't wan to deal with it! We are just a bunch of people loving the same adorable fluffy animal :D ;)

I know there are lot's of other guinea pig groups out there but I just wanted to give everyone another opportunity to share their photos and art. No such thing as to much guinea ;) And so I can run a group about something that I love and enjoy :) I also want to include useful info about guinea's on our group page. Please talk to me if you have suggestion or ideas for the group! Anything to help it run better! And spread the word to any of your cavy friends :D

Thanks for reading <3
