The answer is B.) Cavia porcellus. Guinea pigs are sometimes called cavy because of their scientific name. It is from the small rodent family that is mostly found in the Andes Mountains. They were at first farmed as food but when the Spaniards arrived in the 1500s, they kept the guinea pigs as pets due to their small in size and docile nature.

And today, these small and friendly rodents are still being bred and kept as pets all around the globe. One can easily distinguish a guinea pig from other rats species.

Let's see how far my knowledge stretches

There are some differences between a hog and a pig, although many might not know because both words are referring to swine, and they belong to suidae family of mammals. However, the fact that they belong to the same family does not make them entirely the same. A hog is different from a pig. By definition, a hog is any animal belonging to the Suidae family of mammals, especially the pig, the warthog, and the boar. And it is used to refer to adult swine.

But a pig, which is even more common and available than a hog, is any of several mammalian species of the genus Sus, having cloven hooves, bristles and a nose adapted for digging; especially the domesticated farm pig. Pig is used to refer to a young swine. The major differences between a hog and a pig is in their age and size. Like I said before, a pig is a younger swine and a hog is an older swine. And as a result, you should expect a pig to be smaller in size than a hog. Most times, what farmers sell in the market is adult swine which is hog and not pig.

Baby pigs are called piglets - like the little pig in “Winnie the Pooh” books and movies. Pigs are often referred to as swine, hogs, or pigs, and a mother might be called a sow. Often, piglets are only born twice a year. A domestic piglet is often the one we think of if we’re not picturing Piglet from “Winnie the Pooh”.

The pig piglet that is shown as is the domestic pig, and is often the one that is taken from their family to be slaughtered for ham, pork, and sausage. A few domestic pigs are kept as pets, but these are few and far between. Often, the bristles, hide, and other parts of the pig are sold off as well once the meat has been sold off.

A guinea pig can live up to 9 to 10 years. Guinea pigs live an average of five to seven years, according to the University of Pennsylvania's Penn Veterinary Medicine. Average means some guinea pigs live longer lives and some live shorter lives. For example, the University of Michigan's Museum of Zoology points out that guinea pigs can live up to 14 years.

Which type of guinea pig you have at home determines how long he can live. Hairless guinea pigs, for example, have a higher life span average seven to eight years than other types. Long-haired guinea pigs, on the other hand, live less, with average life spans of five to six years.

A guinea pig should only be given a bath once every three months. Guinea pigs clean themselves, so baths are rare. Certain ailments make a bath necessary; otherwise you might bathe a guinea pig if its long coat is particularly soiled or if you're showing the pet for conformation. Bathing a rodent can pose health risks. Short-hair and long-hair guinea pigs have vastly different grooming needs.

Most short-haired cavies are excellent self-groomers. A short-haired guinea pig whose cage is properly cleaned shouldn't ever need a bath.

The warthog can be described as a wild pig from Africa. They are found in open and semiopen habitats, even in quite arid regions, in sub-Saharan Africa. The two species were formerly considered conspecific under the scientific name Phacochoerus aethiopicus, but today this is limited to the desert warthog, while the best-known and most widespread species, the common warthog (or simply warthog) is Phacochoerus africanus.

Although covered in bristly hairs, their bodies and heads appear largely naked from a distance, with only the crest along the back, and the tufts on their cheeks and tails being obviously haired. The English name refers to their facial wattles, which are particularly distinct in males. They also have very distinct tusks, which reach a length of 25.5 to 63.5 cm (10.0 to 25.0 in) in the males, but are always smaller in the females.
