We often think of the humble Guinea Pig as no more than a humble mantool for research to be sacrificed or eaten; in fact the Guinea Pig are one of the most noble of all creatures. They may even have aided in saving the human race in space. The were also one of the animals sacrificed to later be a meteorite; maybe the number of dogs, monkeys and humans is/was far less.
"Guinea pigs have been launched into orbital space-flight several times, first by the USSR on the Sputnik 9 biosatellite of March 9, 1961 - with a successful recovery. China also launched and recovered a biosatellite in 1990 which included guinea pigs as passengers."
Please take the time to think about the role that many species have played in potentially saving humans.
Best Always in your endeavors but leave the Noble Guinea Pig alone,
