Meet Frida *bonded To Luna*
My name is Frida, and I came to the Victoria SPCA with my daughter, Luna. We are healthy, friendly, food motivated, and ready for our forever home!
Did you notice my crazy cow-licked hair? I am an Abyssinian guinea pig, and so is Luna. Abyssinians have multiple rosettes across our bodies. Rosettes are central points from which fur grows outward and these furs collide with fur from the opposing direction, causing them to crest and create ridges.
You may be wondering, are Abyssinian guinea pigs friendly? And the answer is yes! Of all the breeds of guinea pigs, many claim that the Abyssinian is one of the most friendly. Also, Abyssinian guinea pigs are known to share the average guinea pig traits of skittishness and social bonds. Generally, Abyssinian guinea pigs will only bite when they’re extremely uncomfortable and as a defense mechanism, but this is how most guinea pigs are in general.
