If you are thinking about buying a guinea pig, or if you already have one, and you are thinking about putting something in it’s cage, or even thinking about getting an open top cage, you might be wondering if guinea pigs can climb.
The thing is, that although they can climb, it is highly unlikely for a guinea pig to climb up a wire cage. They do not have much climbing strength, so they will only climb up things that are not on a steep incline.
Some young guinea pigs can actually climb up wire cages given something they can prop themselves up against.
If you want to buy an open top cage, you need to make sure there is nothing around the perimeter that the guinea pig can use to help it climb.
You should also make sure there are no external dangers to the guinea pig, like small children, or other pets.
