Methodology to calculate the age of a guinea pig

There is actually no infallible mathematical formula to calculate the human age of a guinea pig because its growth and physiological changes during its life are very different from what's seen in humans.

However, it is rather based on the observations of the ages of the guinea pig, that veterinarians have established a correlation table (age chart) to see an equivalent in human age:

Real guinea pig age 1 mth 2 mths 4 mths 6 mths 8 mths 10 mths 1 yrs 2 yrs 3 yrs 4 yrs 5 yrs 6 yrs
Human age 14 20 26 32 38 44 50 60 80 100 120 140

Life expectancy of the guinea pig: usually three to four years, sometimes up to six to height years.

How do we call?
  • a baby guinea pig: a guinea piglet
  • a female guinea pig: a guinea sow
  • a male guinea pig: a guinea boar!

Animals rights

Animal abuse is unbearable, and it is important to give rights to animals. For more than three decades, the Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF) has been fighting to protect the lives and advance the interests of animals through the legal system, pushing government agencies to do their jobs to protect animals and shining a national spotlight on issues like factory farming and dissection in schools.
