Steve Bicknell from publishers Maverick Arts is the designer behind these festive and hilariously odd guinea pig calendars.

Bicknell was quoted in The Telegraph saying,"Guinea Pig Games is one of our most successful calendars. We hired the guinea pigs from Palace Piggie Rescue in Crawley in exchange for a donation. The owner of the rescue site handled the guinea pigs."

The calender features the tiny, cuddly creatures competing in all the Olympic sports. Some of the more hilarious include guinea pigs participating in synchronized diving, javelin throwing, relay, rhythmic gymnastics and marathon running.

These lighthearted and joyful calenders are a perfect host gift to anyone that will be throwing an Olympic-themed party this year. Stats for Rodent Olympic Calendars Trending: Older & Buzzing
