Keeper, Kirsty Thornton, said: “We have introduced the girls to Muffin as he is a non-related male.

“He’s a very handsome boy with ginger, white and brown long hair whereas both Alice and Belle are dark with short hair, so we should soon see some beautiful babies.”

Gestation lasts an average 63 to 68 days.

CAPTION: When Alice met Muffin: keepers are hoping the guinea pig pairing will bring the patter of tiny paws.
