I like guinea pigs because they don't bite very much and when they do, it's not that strong enough that it would rip out your finger..I also like it when they wheek aloud when they know that food is coming their way..I like to hold and pet them..It's also fun to watch them eat grass..One more thing is that they don't smell that much..Maybe because they only eat fruits and vegetables, no meat..

Yes, I used to have several as a kid, and they really are quite lovely! The only thing that would slightly annoy me about them is that they can be quite loud sometimes (one of my guinea pigs would scream like crazy whenever she heard someone opening the refridgerator door, because she knew that's where we kept the vegetables, for instance).

I also like guinea pigs as pets. I owned two at one point, and now I'm down to one. I think they make great pets because they are easy to handle, and tend to be quite friendly. They are large enough that you dont have to worry about dropping them, but small enough that they do not take up a lot of space. They can also live for quite a while with proper care. As long as people do their research and buy the proper equipment needed to take care of a guinea pig, they make great beginner pets and great pets for people who do not own large homes.
