The White Crested cavy is a short haired, smooth coated cavy.

It has a distinctive white crest placed on top of it's head.

There can be no other white spots anywhere on the animal, the only white is to be found in the crest.

Therefore, certain color varieties, such as Dutch, Roan, Dalmatian, and White, are not accepted colors for this breed.

The cavy pictured above was the first White Crested to ever win Best in Show at an ARBA National Convention.
