Summary :

Giant monsters are a staple of science fiction, from the 50-foot woman, to Godzilla, to killer insects of various kinds. "The Hungry Guinea Pig" follows in this tradition with an experiment in growth hormones run out of control. Vainly, the authorities attempt to stop the experiment, and a final solution is left up to the creator of the monster to devise. Just what would a giant guinea pig do when it escaped, anyway?
