Guinea Pig

It's not a pig, and it doesn't come from the African country of Guinea. In fact, this small critter originates in the Andes of South America , and some say that "Guinea" could be a corruption of Guyana, which is part of South America. Incidentally, they're also unrelated to pigs, although some South Americans appreciate them in a similar way — guinea pigs are apparently rather tasty.
