Guinea Pigs: Family Pet Series by Katrin Behrend

Published in 1997 by Barron's Educational Series, Inc.
127 pages

Lots of pictures! Satins, babies, pigs eating, grooming themselves.
Pictures and information on related, wild guinea pig species.
Some of the photo captions can be confusing as to the breed of the guinea pig.
The book was translated from German and originally used the British standards.
So some of the British and U.S. breed names are intermixed.
