When you say "wild cavy" do you mean this was a wild specimen living in the zoo grounds, or is a captive animal with the common name "wild cavy"? What is the scientific name of this animal?
Cavia aperea. The common name is wild cavy (generally speaking, this includes several species), also Brazilian cavy, Brazilian guineapig, wild guineapig, etc.
Thanks for that.
