This is the size of a 2 year old guineapig

Put one hand on each ear, and slowly bring them away from your face where you can see them, this is the size.

For a 6 week old guinea pig put one of your index finger's on the outside part of your eye do the same with the other side, slowly bring them away from your face, this is the size

What I am Trying to say is guinea pigs grow at a steady pace and if you want a small guinea pig I suggest you pick the runt of the litter

Babies are about an inch tall and 3-4 inches wide. Two can easily fit in your hand.

A guinea pig will be approximately six to eight inches from nose to backside and will weigh from 1.5 to 3 lbs. They are all generally the same size but males tend to be a bit larger and more aggressive so a female bought from a reliable breeder would be the the best choice for you. Good luck!
