Guinea Pig Breaks Into Female Enclosure And Impregnates Over 100 Females Before Getting Caught
The Hatton Country World staff in Warwickshire couldn’t understand why they suddenly had 100 pregnant guinea pigs on their hands. Later, they noticed that one of the male rodents had managed to escape his enclosure and infiltrate the female-only enclosure.
“One of our male guinea pigs managed to find his way into the female enclosure and had a very good time by the looks of it.”
The exhausted father-to-be, nicknamed Randy, had lost a bit of weight when they found him. When the staff discovered he was actually a male rodent in the wrong pen they had to prepare for 100 pregnant females which could have up to 4 or more pigs each.
“We suspect a child may have placed him back in the wrong pen by accident after stroking him or Randy may have somehow broken out of his enclosure to get to the females. ”
“We believe that the newly-named Randy could have impregnated up to 100 female guinea pigs, which have litters of about four, so if you do the maths we could be expecting quite a baby boom.
“We don’t know how long Randy was in the female enclosure but it could have been several weeks which would have given him time to go round the entire female population.
“Staff did comment he looked a little thinner than before. He has now re-joined his male friends, clearly he’s got a lot of bragging to do.”
The staff is planning to build an extension to the guinea pig farm to accommodate Randy’s huge brood.
