How Long Do Guinea Pigs Live?

A healthy, well-looked-after guinea pig should live for between five and eight years. Some live even longer, and the world record is held by Snowball, a guinea pig from Nottinghamshire in England, who reached the grand old age of fourteen years and ten months.

Guinea pig longevity
Although the average lifespan is 5 to 8 years, guinea pigs can sometimes reach double digits

Even five to eight years is a big time investment, so you and the other guinea pig carers need to be fully committed to the long haul of pet keeping.
