Papa New Guinea and Mama New Guinea

Our new pigs! I used to breed and show American Cavies when I had rabbits (the shows are often held together, so many rabbit breeders dabble in cavies and vice versa). Papa is on the left and Mama is on the right. Both are Tortoiseshell in color (Papa is dilute) and both have poor color distribution, but the genes are there and they have decent type and coats. They are really young, just weaned, so are still living together for now. Aren't they sweet? I already love their wheeking noises!
