Tooske

Tooske, Mouse, Minnie, Moustache, Tilly and Thea come from the Malmokkie rescue centre. They were brought there by private individuals. They had taken over a guinea pig from people who wanted to get rid of it immediately; they were told it was a female. For the well-being of the animal, they added 2 other females. As it turned out, the first was not a female but a male. One of the females gave birth to 3 daughters not much later.

It became financially difficult for the private individuals to take good care of the animals and they therefore decided to contact the Malmokkie rescue center.

Where does he feel most at home?

The guinea pigs used to live on the Andean mountains on the low-laying plains as well as higher up the mountain sides. Nowadays there’re no wild guinea pigs anymore.

What's his favourite food?

They like grasses, herbs and other plants.

Fun fact

Most people don’t know that the guinea pig can produce a wide range of sounds. Not only do they make the well-known squeaky sound, they can grumble, scream, chatter and hum as well.
