Can Guinea Pigs Eat Carnival Squash?

Summer isn't quite over yet, but you can already tell that fall is right around the corner. The humans have been complaining less about sweating like pigs (even though I try to assure them that sweating isn't a problem for us), and more squash has been showing up at the grocery stores and farmer's markets. It was therefore only a matter of time before they managed to find a new one for us to review. Good job, humans!

Today, we're reviewing carnival squash. It turns out that carnival squash is a hybrid of acorn squash (which we've reviewed) and another type called sweet dumpling squash (which we've never heard of). Carnival squash is a winter squash, which means 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 small raw cubes of the orange flesh (not too much- sugar and all).
So colorful!
Come on, Broccoli! Share with me!
How about if I just reach in there?
More! More! More!

No more? Aw...
We have no complaints at all about carnival squash. It was nutty and a little sweet. We finished every last bite the humans gave us. We give carnival squash 5/5 stars!


  1. Hmm, our human has never given us any squash. Note to selves: order human to remedy this ASAP!
