These gorgeous guinea pigs came in to see us yesterday. Can you spot the six babies alongside the two mummies? One batch of babies was born a week ago, and the other just on Saturday! So adorable to meet them all!

Given the photo, we were really interested to know what a collection of guinea pigs is called. According to, it’s rather disappointingly just ‘a group’. Given that there are such brilliant names for collections of other animals (a glaring of cats, a business of ferrets, a prickle of porcupines, an unkindness of ravens…) we came up with ‘a snuggle of guinea pigs’. We’d love to hear your suggestions!
