A Guinea Pig Beauty Contest in Ecuador

In a heartwarming and unexpected turn of events, this weekend witnessed an extraordinary event in the canton of Machachi, Pichincha province—a beauty contest for guinea pigs! Hosted by the Genoveva German Educational Unit, specializing in technical-agricultural training, this unique event showcased over 20 guinea pigs of diverse breeds.

The participants in this unconventional contest strutted their furry stuff before a panel of judges, evaluating not only their physical appearance but also their behavior and overall health. Each guinea pig had its moment to shine, captivating the audience with their unique traits and charms.

The art of guinea pig farming is deeply rooted in the Andean regions of our country. Guinea pig meat holds a special place in Ecuadorian cuisine, especially in the highlands, celebrated for its nutritional value and exquisite taste.
