What type of hair do guinea pigs have?
Guinea pigs (also known as cavies) are normally divided into three coat types: Smooth-haired - The short coats are the easiest to look after. There is a range of colours, markings, patterns or crests. Long-haired - The long silky hair needs brushing every day and regular bathing. These include the Sheltie, the Coronet and the Peruvian. Coarse-coats- These coats give the guinea pig an unusual rough look as the hair swirls and points in every direction giving it a rough appearance.
