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.

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! (http://rockinguineas.co.uk/image.php?id=117)

Whereas Mo in the centre here has ears which are close to her head but point backwards: Guinea Gallery! (http://rockinguineas.co.uk/image.php?id=121)

Twitch's ears flop forward:

Its all just natural variation.
