adopted 2 <3

so i was browsing the internet and came across two guinea pigs, I instantly fell in love with them and decided to email I thought for sure that they where gone because the add had been up for months but surprise they weren't apparently according to the owner Im only the second person to email about them the first person wanted to feed them to his reptiles ( I understand they need to eat to but ... to me its just weird that guinea pigs apparently can be reptile food to ) but anyways so the new babies are coming home Monday its been ages since iv had Guinea pigs in the house so im sort of nervous . Here are some pics of them, any suggestions for names

Congrats! They are cute! I like the black & white one.
Are they male or female?

And yes...reptile owners feed pigs and rabbits to larger reptiles.It might sound cruel to rodent owners,but it happens.I have nothing against it,but I am glad your babies are going to be well loved and not food!

I forget what the guy said i think he said males either way there both the same sexe i remember that much,. I have nothing against reptiles having to eat or even eating other animals but i don't think something that was a pet should be fed to another animal. but thats just me.

Unfortunatly any rodent pet or not is fair game for food items for reptiles.

Fan of Harry Potter? Could name 'em George and Fred.

Claw and Puff....

Personally I like Claw and Puff. You could name the dominant one Claw, and the subordinate Puff.

Green..? Could've been "vitamin" water, a lot of people don't realize you shouldn't add vitamins to water.
