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

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.
