How do you move a herd of guinea pigs when it’s habitat cleaning time? Staff at Nagasaki’s Bio Park solved this problem with a suspension bridge that the guinea pigs use to walk from one habitat to another. This six-second Vine video shows the migration in action — and it is awesome to behold. They quickly head onto the bridge and scamper across single-file with nary a pause. This kind of traffic, I like. In fact, I find myself watching the loop over and over. I don’t know how often the guinea pigs make this commute, but it’s the cutest commute ever!

The Bio Park opened in 2004 and strives to create natural habitats that keep the approximately 2,000 animals in its care happy. A suspension bridge might not occur often in nature, but it sure looks like it provides a happy event for these guinea pigs!
