What could be better than scrolling through your Instagram feed to come across a cute guinea pig smiling back at you?

Nothing, that’s what. Literally, nothing is better than surprise guinea pigs on your Insta feed.

To help you increase your photo feed’s ratio of guinea pigs to “not guinea pigs,” we spent hours finding the cutest and most squee-worthy cavies Instagram has to offer.

Did we miss something? Leave a comment to let us know!

10. Three Happy Piggies (@3happypiggies)

Piggy, Princess, and Pumpkin the guinea pigs go from tame to 100 percent silly with each swipe of the finger. Whether Pumpkin is showing off his fuzzy bum or Princess (above) takes a nap — or a romp through the wild outdoors (closely supervised and photographed, of course) — you won’t get bored here. Nope. Not at all.

9. Piggie Parodies (@piggieparodies)

Piggie Parodies is run by a graphic designer and guinea pig slave to three adorable guinea pigs.

The feed is chock full of parody posters featuring this Instagrammer’s guinea pigs, with a few other animals thrown in for good measure.

Think BatPig. Alice Pooper. A Nightmare on Wheek Street.

You get the idea. Now give him a follow.

8. Guinea Winnie Ninny Mini (

This Australian Insta captures the lives of Winnie (a blind pig), Ninny, and Mini (Ninny’s mom), and Tiny Pig. From snack time to floor time, follow this Insta to get behind-the-scenes and up-close to three seriously adorable guinea pigs.

7. I’m Not a Hamster (@imnotahamster)

I’m Not a Hamster documents the daily lives of three boars: Ben, Brownie, and Barley. Not surprisingly, there are a lot of photos of guinea pigs yawning and sleeping. Unlike the other Instagram accounts, here, most photos aren’t posed, because sometimes you just want to see pigs being pigs.

6. GuineaPigture (@guineapigture)

Dutch guineas Tito and Reno live pampered, fuzzy lives and intend to share every moment of it with their 28K fans. Outdoor romps? Check. Popcorning pigtures? Check. Getting featured on primetime Dutch TV? Check!

3. Ludwig (@ludwik_guinea_pig)

Skinny hairless guinea pig

Skinny pig!

Ludwik the hairless “skinny pig” doesn’t have time for your unrealistic beauty standards. Hairless, wrinkly, and full of personality, Ludwik is a rescued guinea pig who even has his own line of fan club socks.

2. The Lava Empire (@thelavaempire)

A post shared by @thelavaempire on

The Lava Empire account came to fame after going viral with the “Guinea Pigs Jumping Over the Lava” YouTube hit in early 2016.

With this Insta, you can follow the ups-and-downs of a herd of spoiled, popcorning guinea pigs living the life of luxury somewhere in a high-rise in New York City.
