If possible try to start by housing your guinea pigs with a mesh separating them so they can begin to communicate. If the scent swapping and communication through the mesh looks positive the next step is to find a neutral space for them to meet in – an outside run is ideal, or a spare room.description Guinea pigs are rodents, which means they are part of the same family as hamsters, mice, and gerbils. They are also commonly known as 'cavies', which comes from their Latin name, 'Cavia porcellus'. Nobody knows for sure how they came to be known as 'guinea pigs' because they are neitherpigs nor from Guinea.habitat Guinea pigs live in the wild in South America, living in rocky areas, grasslands and forest edges. They live in groups of about 10 adults, and live in burrows, either dug by themselves or by other animals. They are most active at night, when they come out and forage on a wide variety of plant materials.life cycle The average guinea pig life span is around 4-6 years, although some can live as long as 8 years. This is much longer than most other small pets, including other rodents such as mice (1-3 years), gerbils (2-4 years), and hamsters (2-3 years).
