1. Yikes! So many - and they are making happy sounds, LOL!

My brother used to have a Guinea Pig and I wish I knew they enjoyed Brussels Sprouts that much!

2. I love brussel sprouts as much as these guinea pigs do so I would be in good company.

Cute group looks and sounds like they are in guinea pig heaven. Thank you for this.

5. I think they calls those sounds "wheeking" and associated with excitement.


This web page educated me on guinea pig sounds or as the professionals say, "cavy" which is short for Cavia porcellus.

7. Makes me want to get some

But those would be the sounds my cats and dogs would make while eating the guinea pigs.

11. Its true that there are two strategies.


1. Sidle up: the GPs sidle up to the edge of the tray, plant their feet, and chow down.

2. Snatch and run: like little thieves they snatch a sprout and run away.

They are social animals and I wonder if the strategies are related to pecking order stuff.
