#1 Cute as Cuy
Guinea pigs are a tasty way to start the day in Peru and Bolivia. We call our guinea pig Mr. Fluffers. They prefer the name "Cuy"(koo-ee), which translates into "Let's eat this thing".<!--more-->Barbecue style guinea pigs have even become the national dish. It makes sense when you consider that they are easier to raise than chickens or other large animals. They also reproduce quickly. More guinea pig for everyone! So, they're not regarded as the cuddly pets we consider them to be. So what? You can't beat a meal high in protein and low in saturated fat. We hear they taste great, too. Come here, Mr. Fluffers! Yes, yes, that's a good Mr. Fluffers.
