Can Guinea Pigs Eat Calabaza Squash?

Calabaza squash is a winter squash that looks a lot like a pumpkin. When it comes to winter squash like calabaza, we can have it 2-4 times per week. Don't feed us the stem, skin, seeds or stringy parts around the seeds. Just feed us some raw cubes of the orange flesh.

Just the cubes. That's the good stuff!
By the way, the seeds can be toasted and eaten by your humans if you don't want to waste the parts we can't eat. Calabaza can also get as big as watermelons, so your humans will probably have to eat some of the orange flesh as well. There are plenty of recipes out there for them to use.

Yum!
Calabaza squash tastes a lot like butternut squash, which we also liked. Therefore, it should be no surprise that calabaza squash gets 5/5 stars!
