[FONT=Arial][FONT="]My guinea pigsí ears are raised? Why? Are they mongrels? Iíve seen different pictures of guinea pig on the web and I noticed that their ears hang down.[/FONT][/FONT]
Re: erect ears
Mongrels? Pretty much all guineas are mixed breeds. Not really the correct word.
Our 5 guineas all have various different ear types:
Davina's ears stick out like a mouse: Guinea Gallery!
Whereas Mo in the centre here has ears which are close to her head but point backwards: Guinea Gallery!
Twitch's ears flop forward:
Its all just natural variation.
