How to hold a guinea pig

Guinea pigs can be quite wriggley at times, they can scratch, but VERY rarely bite.

when getting them out, they usually run straight for their bed, or wherever they sleep or go to hide.

the way to get one out easily, is to stop their way from getting into a large place. then hook one hand around its belly and the other hand around the back legs and under its bum to support his/her legs and spine.

when you are holding the guinea pig, you should put it on your chest, they feel safe and they like it because it is quite warm.
