Cavy| 4-H Project Resources & Curriculum
Cavies, commonly known as guinea pigs, are delightful animals. Although timid, they generously give affection for a small amount of care. Through this project, you will reap many rewards including the companionship of the animal. The cavy is popular as a pet because of its docile, gentle manner and attractive, roly-poly appearance.
