cavyAlso known as guinea pigs, cavies have a fascinating history. Originating in South America, cavies are friendly and lovable pets.

In the multi-level Cavy project, provide complete care for a cavy of any breed for at least 90 days.

In a Non-Animal Cavy project, you can benefit from many aspects of an animal project without actually owning the animal.
