Benito, the Pet of the Day
Name: Benito
Age: One and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Buenos Aires, Argentina
   My name is Benito and I live with my mom, dad and my cavy brother Peludo in Buenos Aires, Argentina. As we live in an apartment, dad created a little garden in the balcony for us. That way we get to enjoy the outdoors. Every day, when it isn't too cold, we spend the afternoons eating grass, running and investigating mom's plants.

    When I was a child I wanted to grow up so as to reach one of mom's tallest plants. It seemed so yummy! It took many months to reach it. Finally the day came. I cut a leaf and began chewing it. When mom saw me I was spitting it out on the floor. All that glitters is not gold! But you know what? I don't think I will learn from that experience. I'm too curious. That's my nature! I just love to explore!
