After months of planning and research, I have concluded that I want a Texel Guines Pig! This isn't the one I'm getting, I wish it was he's so cute, but I want a black or grey one. Texel cavy is characterized by the ringlets or curls that make up it's long, soft coat. Curls are to be found all over the body, even on the belly. The Texel has a short, compact body, with a broad,well-rounded head. The Texel was accepted as a recognized breed by the American Rabbit Breeders Association, Inc. in (1998) This breed was originally imported from England.
