So, long story short: My sister was fostering three female guinea pigs from her school's animal lab over winter break, only it turned out that one of them was male and that this mistake had happened over a month ago and the two females were in fact quite pregnant. Now, if a guinea pig doesn't give birth by the time she's 2 years old, her hipbones fuse, making it extremely difficult for her to successfully give birth, so the plan was to bring them back to the school for an abort spay; but one of them unexpectedly went into labor a week or so earlier than we expected, and despite the odds, gave birth to two healthy babies!

Meanwhile, I had just learned how to shoot my photos in RAW, so the guinea pigs made perfect...uh...guinea pigs for practicing my photography.

So yeah, those were the piggies. They've since gone back to the school lab. The babies will probably need a home, so they might come back to us for good after this semester is over. (The other pregnant pig gave birth and survived, but her pups were stillborn.)
