  • Did you know that Queen Elizabeth I is the first had a Guinea pig? She helped the Guinea pig get its popularity. Also, Guinea pigs came to America in the 1800s and were favored by aristocrats and ladies of the courts. I bet that you would not believe ladies of the courts had servants carry their Guinea pigs on silk pillows! Guinea pigs got their name when they came to England. Guinea pigs were sold there for one guinea which was an old english coin. Guinea pigs are not from Guinea they are from Peru. Guinea pigs got the pig part of their name because they make the same noises as pigs, such as squeals and grunts.  *http://nataliedavid.wordpress.com/
