Question Date: 2006-06-29
Answer 1:

Guinea pigs are expected to live out their whole lives in just 4-7 years. Humans on the other hand are expected to live to about 70 years old. So if a guinea pigs lives all the way to 7 years old, one year of its life is the same as 10 years of your life! That means that a 2 year old guinea pig is like a human who already graduated from college!!

Answer 2:

Guinea pigs live on average 5 years and Humans life on average 80 years.So,one Human year is like 16 Guinea pig years. In other words, a Guinea pig year is about three weeks long.
