Should I get a guinea pig (or something else, please read)?

Question by Earth Song? Eli ??: Should I get a guinea pig (or something else, please read)?
I like them because they’re smaller than rabbits, and bigger than hamster. Still, I heard they break their backs often, and are delicate. Their diets are delicate as well, they need a LOT of vitamin C, I’ve heard,
My english teacher said I ought to get a hedgehog or a sugar glider instead. How do their prices (and maintenance) compare to that of a guinea pig?
I have a 6-year-old in the house btw, although she won’t be holding it all that often..

i had a guinea pig for 7 years and although i did love little April, she was a pain. their cages get dirty really quickly and they eat a lot, a LOT (espicially lettuce) .. some are quite active and entertaining, but then you also mihgt get one thats just completely lazy (like mine) .. its one extreme or the other.
