Smile colors...

I was at a petstore the other day (where i get my crickets)

however, i always have to look around and drool at all the cute pets. but i was looking at their piggies and tehre was some that were really light colored! really super cute colors....like pastel creams, browns, beige, and a really light reddish-cream.

they were adorable too but what colors are there? or does it just matter about their background (mom and dad) or what??

just curious as i know very little about piggies.

Sounds like they had lilac and cream colored guinea pigs. Or possibly mutts from local breeder culls. :\

Interesting!

Around here the most common GP colors are black,white,orange,tri-color and agouti.Thats all I see usually.And sometimes there is the odd albino.

Those look like either abbysinian/peruvian mixes, or very young peruvians (before their hair has grown out), and are agouti and white broken, I believe.
