Hi!
About a year ago, I bought two guinea pig girls, who also happened to be sisters. They look very similar though, almost identical...

Guinea pigs can have identical twins, right? Here's a picture of the girls, Fermi and Luna

Could they be identical twins?

I also used to have another set of girls that also seemed to be twins too. I named them both Bessy :)) Here's a picture of them.

They do look almost identical, you have to look very closely to see any differences which would be hard if they're far away. They're all gorgeous & i love that you called two Bessy :))

I have had my "twins" almost 2 years & it's only the past 6 months i can now tell them apart without picking them up to check their ears (one has a nick out of each) :)

Awwwww, your twins are so cute, Niki!

I can tell Fermi and Luna apart much easier now. Fermi has a black spot right around her left nostril, while Luna also has a spot, but it's more to the left, than Fermi's. :)) As for the Bessy twins, one has two brown ears, while the other has half a pink ear :))

Thank you all for your posts :)

One of my girls (Dill) had two surprise pups last summer who were identical, i couldnt tell them apart at all, apart from a tiny nick in ones ear. Heres Pickle (left) and Onion.
