Guinea pig?

Postby petitchameau » 2010-09-05, 5:09

So, does anyone know the Georgian word for Guinea pig? Hamster is ზაზუნა, but I'd like to know Guinea pig as well. Someone told me it was something that translated to "sea pig" because sailors used to keep them as pets? Who knows... anyone have some information to share?

It's ზღვის გოჭი piglet of the sea. I have three guinea pigs, and people always call them hamsters, haha :)

Oh wow, so 'sea pig' wasn't too far off. Thanks very much! :D
