Guinea Pig years to human years

guinea pig years to human years

Do you want to convert guinea pig years to human years? Dividing average human lifespan by average guinea pig life expectancy won't give you a correct answer.

As a guinea pig's average lifespan is only 6 years, they mature quickly during their first months of life. And a 1-year-old guinea pig is already 50 in human years.

Connecting the dots on the guinea pig and human lifelines has helped make some age equivalent estimations:

Guinea pig age Human age
1 month 4 years
6 months 26 years
1 year 50 years
5 years 90 years
