Can Guinea Pigs Eat Turban Squash?

Halloween is just around the corner, so it's time for us to review a pumpkin-like squash! (We've already reviewed pumpkin itself a while back, so that's not an option.) The humans brought us back something called a turban squash from the grocery store this time, presumably because it looks like it's wearing a turban. Please be aware that this squash will probably be difficult for your human to cut; you may want to hide out in your pigloo while they angrily shout at the squash and attack it with their largest, sharpest kitchen knife.

As a winter squash, we can have turban squash 2-4 times per week. Like just about all winter squashes, you'll want to have your human only serve you the flesh, not the skin, seeds, or stringy parts in the middle.

It kind of looks like a smaller squash got stuck inside a larger squash!
Hey, just because you have your foot on the plate doesn't mean you control the squash!
I've got my eye on that piece right there. Don't try to stop me! 
That's enough squash for now. I'm going to eat some of this hay that spilled on the floor instead.
After getting bored of it for a bit, I decided to give it another shot before Lola and Buffy ate the last piece. Turban squash is pretty good, but not quite as enticing as something like carrots. We'll give turban squash 4/5 stars!


  1. sounds fairly good! we hope our human can find it! where would it would probably be, at a farmers market, or the grocery store? thanks!

    1. Our humans found this one at a grocery store. We wouldn't be surprised if you could find them at farmer's markets as well. There are all kinds of squash available there in the fall!
