Beefcake, the Pet of the Day
Name: Beefcake
Age: One and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Golden Agouti
Home: New York, USA
   Beefcake is a male Golden Agouti Guinea pig, born in July of 1998 in North Carolina. We got Beefcake from a breeder while we were on vacation in Raleigh. (He now lives in New York with us.) He seemed like he would be a macho guinea pig, and we were into South Park at the time, so that's how he got his name. It turns out that it is a misnomer, because he is a big wimp. He always cries and runs away if any of the other males go after him, and he squeals really loud every time you try to pick him up.

    He is a very good jumper, and he hops over the 16" divider wall of his cage and visits my other guinea pigs. Luckily, they don't fight. They just chubble a lot until he finally jumps back over. I am including a very cute baby picture, and a current photo of him in all his magnificence. Visit Beefcake's web page.
