Semi-protected edit request on 14 April 2015[edit]

Under Pets the governing body for the fancy in New Zealand is shown as the New Zealand Cavy Club. This is an error as the New Zealand Cavy Club is a club just like any other of a handful of clubs in New Zealand (eg. Auckland Cavy Club, Taranaki Club, Garden City Cavy Club and the New Zealand Cavy Club) and not a governing national association. Until Easter of this year, the interests of the fancy in New Zealand were overseen by a secretariat position representing all clubs in New Zealand called Combined Cavy Clubs New Zealand. As of the this past Easter National Show, the governance of the fancy in New Zealand now rests with the embryonic organisation of the 'New Zealand Cavy Council'.

Polish and Russian[edit]

Polish świnka morska, and Russian морская свинка means literally sea pig. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.193.218.30 (talk) 21:59, 25 April 2015 (UTC)
