Just of out curiosity, how much does the average guinea pig sleep in a day?

Also, does anyone know where I can find some fun facts about guinea pigs? I'm not looking for basic, common facts but something with a little more depth.

Thanks as always!
 
Guinea pigs are crepuscular, which means they're most active at dusk and dawn. (And yes, I know that sounds like a particularly awful kind of acne, but it's not!) In between, mine eat, poop and nap. So I'd say my two probably sleep at least 16 hours a day, maybe more.

As far as guinea pig information is concerned, most that you find in books is outdated or just plain wrong. Read the articles on the main page of this site, at Guinea Pig Education, Care, Rescue and Adoption at Cavy Spirit, and www.guinealynx.info. Read the stickies on the forums here -- most of them have good info.
