Ananova gives an account of the successful breeding of giant guinea pigs for human food. Peruvian researchers, having sought their quarry for the past 34 years, have now developed a large nutritious guinea pig that weighs in at around a kilo.

The meat of the jumbo guinea pig is high in protein and low in fat and cholesterol, like rabbit -- but the guinea pig has tiny little legs, which make it hard for it to escape a hungry IPKat ..

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
