Guinea Pigs. Not really a pig, but small hamster type animals. They are often known as cavy, or domestic guinea pig, or cuy. Strangely, they do not originate from the pig family Suidae, nor the ones from guinea. They originate from Andes. They played a big part of Indigenous South American groups as a food source, but also as folk medicine. Sad, right? Good thing that we now use them for pets. They are the cutest thing ever, but what makes them really special is the long hair. Check these photos out.
