Guinea Pig Colours

The 'original' colour of the Guinea Pig in the wild is agouti but as Guinea Pigs have been bred over the years a number of colour mutations have occurred. Additional colours can be created by combining different colour mutations. Colours can be combined with any coat pattern or coat type.
