Can Guinea Pigs Eat Scallop Squash?

Scallop squash, also known as Pattypan squash, is a type of summer squash. The name "scallop squash" seems to come from the squash's resemblance to the shell of scallop. (A scallop is a sea creature, apparently. We guinea pigs don't know much about the sea, so I'm not embarrassed to admit I had to look that up!) As a summer squash, scallop squash can be fed 2-4 times per week.

What is that? Are you going to feed us a tiny UFO?
Buffy wants so badly to join us, but sometimes she gets so excited, she forgets where the exit is!
Still no Buffy...
...but the human took pity on her, and gave her some squash through the bars.
What can we say about scallop squash? It was good, but not great. Sure, we ate the whole thing, but not as enthusiastically as we eat some other foods. Therefore, we give scallop squash 4/5 stars!
