I saw videos of these bunny-like + hamster creatures on YouTube called Guinea Pigs, they have "pig" in their names, I am not sure If they are scientifically actually pigs because they don't look like any.

Now I know that keeping pigs is haram in Islam, but is it ok to keep guinea pigs as pets, and are they actually considered pigs in Islam?

I would like an answer from the Sunni Hanafi school of thought if this is something that has a difference on the fiqh.
