LIGHT & SHADOW
Guinea pigs: we all know them, but what do we really know about them? This surprisingly social and cunning critter tells a fascinating story from ancient civilization to modern technology; from sacred animal of the ancient Inca, to ritual meat, to diagnostic tool and research model for human society. Get ready for an off-beat voyage from the soaring peaks of the Andes to the Amazon rainforest and Argentine deserts to see guinea pigs as you’ve never seen them before!
