Can Guinea Pigs Eat Okra?
Okra is not listed on our favorite chart, so we had to check the forums of the guinea pig websites to find out if it's safe for us to eat. People said that it can be fed to us one piece a couple times per week, but we may notlike it. We're not going to let ourselves be deterred by the bad experiences of other pigs, however. We're willing to risk not liking it and having our humans clean up the mess.
Let me at it!
This is good! I don't know why those other guinea pigs didn't like it.
Oh. Now I see why they didn't like it.
Okra played a dirty trick on us. It tasted good at first, but then it turned slimy in our mouths. We all ignored it from that point on and started furiously eating hay. Okra gets 2/5 stars, and that's being generous.
