Can Guinea Pigs Eat Bell Peppers?

Honestly, we guinea pigs don't usually care for surprises. Unexpected noises send us running for cover. But there is one kind of surprise we like--tasty surprises! Here's the situation: the humans opened our cage door, making us think it was floor time. Then Lola noticed they left the blue plate on the floor:

Lola, is that the blue plate? I'll be right there!
I knew there's a reason I follow you around during floor time!

We devoured that red bell pepper in no time flat. Is there a competitive eating league for guinea pigs? We should be getting medals for eating talents! As with most red fruit/vegetables, we're going to give red bell peppers 5/5 stars. Please keep in mind that while green bell peppers can be fed almost daily, red bell peppers have more sugar and should only be fed to us 2-4 times per week.  We haven't tried the green ones yet, but our friends at Undercover Guinea Pigs prefer the red and orange ones.


  1. My piggy neon loves to eat green pepper she is eating one right now

    1. They are really good. We should ask our humans to get us some more!

  3. My guinea pigs don't like the orange, yellow, or red bell pepper! They only like green bell pepper which is funny because the other ones are sweeter!:-)

    1. Each guinea pig has their own preferences, I suppose. We'll be happy to eat what your piggies don't! :)

  4. Just fed my piggies red peppers. Lil' Fuzzy loved them, but Grace got a little bored
