bathing guinea pigs

Some people give their guinea pigs baths. Since ours are still very young and not yet interested in being handled, the decision to do this has not come up. In the mean time, the girls do a pretty good job washing themselves.

I've noticed that instead of drinking from the water bottle, Harmony will sometimes get the water to drip out and then use it to wash her face and body. Clever!

Did you know guinea pigs have four fingers on their front paws/hands but just three toes on their back ones? Yup, it's true.
