Guinea Pig Wikia

Himalayans are considered the Siamese cats of the guinea pig world.

This albino breed has a white coat with brown or black coloring on its ears, feet, and nose.

This breed is recommended for people who live in a colder climate, and away from sun.


When a Himalayan is put in direct sunlight or in hot weather, their dark spots fade.

This also happens if the guinea is sick, shocked, or scared.

They do best indoors and can live up to seven years.

The breed isn't officially recognized by the ACBA.
