A small rodent with no tail. It can be found roaming the grassland in herds. It has three toes on its hind feet.

Cavies, more commonly known as guinea pigs, are small domestic animals that can also be found roaming tropical plains. While not usable as livestock, they may make decent pets. Unclaimed tame cavies will require a pasture.

Cavies make excellent live-bait in place of cats if you want your bait to survive. They are quite agile and because of their small size, larger creatures such as forgotten beasts have trouble landing a proper attack on them, with many attacks simply glancing off.

Admired for their three toes and adorable call
