“Guinea Pigs eating watermelon” sent in by Philip P. over at Ant’s Quality Foraged Links.



  1. LoLzzzzz…. nice!

  2. *giggle*

  3. Where’s a Peruvian pan flute band when you need one?

  4. luckysmom says:

    Oh for the LOVE!!! That is just about the cutest thing I’ve ever seen! Slurpalicious, sweet piggehs!!

  5. biblicalgeek says:

    awwwwwwwwwwwwww I love it

  6. Nice! They cut the video just at the part where peegeh chomps a finger! (I guess to spare us the swearing…)

  7. This reminds me of those documentaries on Discovery channel where they show time lapsed photography of hungry little worms devouring leaves, and all you see is the just getting smaller and smaller over time.

  8. I love that cooing sound guinea pigs make.

  9. Felicityanne says:

    Oooo! This reminds me of when my daughter kept piggies and the first thing we knew of the birth of an (unexpected) single baby to a recent acquisition was the incredibly LOUD sound of its ‘wheeping’ first thing in the morning…I love the way g-ps wheep and bubble constantly.

  11. mizz kitteh says:

    OMG the brown one far right has a clip in her hair! >.e gah..too cute… *implodes*

  12. This is just too cute and its suprising how many people love watching little animals do things like eating, like me 🙂

  13. I died of Cute-iac Arrest when I noticed the clip in the brown one’s hair!

  14. Awwwwww!!!!!

    I love the way they’re just wolfing it down like it’s an eating race!

    White Guinea Pig: First one to the rind wins! *chomp*

    Gray Guinea Pig: I win! *bites rind from the side*

    White Guinea Pig: Hey, you cheated!

  15. LOL @ MH!

  16. Catherine says:

    They look like furry caterpillars!

  17. “Ehn… ehn… nomnomnomnom……”

    And Earwig esplodes of the cute!

  18. And of course, the “nomnomnom” song started playing in my head immediately 🙂 It would make a good backgroud music for this clip!

  19. Lula Mae says:

    Fuzzy-wuzzy document shwedders at lunch break!
    (is that what’s inside these dull gray boxes??)

  20. reminds of my rabbit: she liked to mow watermelon slices too

  21. wouldn’t that be NOMMING?!?!

  22. so piggular

  23. Kristin says:

    Here they are nomming on grass with a bunny friend! I love the look the grey one is giving the camera 🙂

  24. Caitlin says:

    @MH: Here you go!

    we saw these guys playing in Bar Harbor ME once… fun times 🙂

  25. Khadija says:

    guinnies are my favouritestest anipals!!!

  26. janet2buns says:

    “Fun fun fun by the ton ton ton, it’s Hungry Hungry Hippos….”

  27. there’s a hidden bunny in the grass video!

  28. Wait a minute, you mean the critter with the long brown hair isn’t a Yorkie?!

    OMG, those have got to be the cutest guinea pigs EVER. Though I’m not sure I can ever eat another piece of watermelon without feeling self-conscious. ; )

  29. Does one have a teeny butterfly clip in her hair? Awesome!

  30. happypiano says:

    the brown one looks very chic with that clip. xD

  31. Katrina says:

    18 seconds? 18 SECONDS? 18 tiiiiny seconds? Oh, come on now, I’m ‘all dressed up with nowhere to go’ over here! 18 seconds.humpherumperumphityrumph….but, I guess, thank you for the 18 INADEQUATE seconds of bliss…..i guess…….maybe…….

  32. It makes me happy that the hammies’ owner patiently held the watermelon for them and that the far right hammie is wearing a hair clip! CO, for sure!

  33. kibblenibble says:


  34. @Kristin (#24)

    Grey Pig: Dude man, that camera is, like, harshing my mellow, dig?

  35. 5^^now8ing says:

    Yes, hair clip is the best!

    I’ve never had Guinea pigs, so I didn’t know about their “wheeping.” How much more anerable could they be?

    None much, that’s how much!

  36. Oops, I wrote hammies when it should hae been piggies. Excuse the faux pas!

  37. I’ve found my way ! : hairdresser for guinea pigs.

  38. OK, the hair clip is KILLING me. Freaking hilarious, and cute, to boot!

  39. Guinea pigs are the cutest animals on earth, bar none.

  40. GIGGLE 😀 It is a Guinea Pigs eating watermelon contest 😀

  41. Von Zeppelin says:

    Do guinea pigs have seed spitting contests? (A popular sport here in Oklahoma.)

  42. So cute. And I love the one of them eating grass. The brown one and the white one even have a tiny “Lady and the Tramp” moment.

  43. I don’t know what is more hilariously adorable: 1) the fancy hairdo of the brown piggie (she’s so glamorous!), 2) the sweet excited noises they make whilst kronsching the watermelon, or 3) the bunny/cherry/heart tablecloth up which they are eating!! This is cute in 3-D.

  44. Redbone says:

    I love the suspicious stare from the gray one in that grass video above. He doesn’t trust that camera one bit.

    They put away that watermelon pretty fast, too. For such little animals, they sure can hork it down pretty quickly.

  45. bighindu says:


  46. I love guinea pigs, they are the sweetest, cutest little guys around. Such sweet little faces and all the noises they make are adorable. I never fed mine watermelon but for my next pig that is a must!

  47. I want to fill my house with 5940228746120985638920305867899320201 of them right now, beyond adorable !

    [Well, that’s more or less a lot. – Ed.]

  48. puddlepeppers says:

    Good times!

  49. Guinea pigs are cute and fun, I grew up with a bunch of them. I hope this new Disney film coming out, G-Force, doesn’t create a popularity surge in guinea pigs that leads to unscrupulous breeding, selling, and care of these adorable little animals.

  50. Believe it or not, but my ducks love watermelon too!

  51. They are cute! Love the innocent face. What’s the breed of the white one? That one looks super cute. 😀

  52. Claudia C. says:

    HEE HEE!!! I love watching them eat! Anything!
    But the grass eating video has a strange piggy. The brown and white one in front of the bunny has a very human looking face. I’m sure it’s just a trick of the fur and the light, but, hmmmm . . .

    I need to find a petting zoo. STAT!!!

  53. coolerbecky says:

    That is so adorable!

    Not as cute as my mice though, but they do make the most adorable sounds!

  54. hon glad says:

    The epitome of nomming.

  55. Wheeek, wheeeeeeeek, wheeeeeeeeeeeek I love guinea pigs…just the cutest little things ever… The ginger one looks just like a pig I had called Basil…

  56. OMG. Ded now. 😀

  57. darkshines says:

    I love the paper they are on, bunnies and cherries?! SHUT UP. 😀

  58. jackie31337 says:

    OMG WANT! My current apartment is too small and too cluttered to be suitable for guinea pigs, but once I get a bigger place, I absolutely need some little furballs.

  59. I love hamsters but I am not suitable to have them as pet. Aww.. they are so adorable..

  60. Nothing seedy about this, at all!

    “Mowing the seeds of love … “

  61. Aww! I have a ton of watermelon in my fridge. Wish I still had a guinea pig to feed it to!

  62. Carlisa says:

    aww! If you turn the speakers up, you CAN hear tiny, mehnny, ehn sounds!

  63. bookmonstercats says:

    The brown GP’s hairclip is killing me. I have a similar brown GP, but he has short hair, apart from the rosette on his head and the mohican down his back (no need for hair gel) so no need for a hair clip. He’s called Ozzy because it’s serious hair action. However, they do eat from my hand and occasionally gently nom on my fingers. I lofs eet.

  64. i love the noises these lil piggies make. so cute! munchamunchamunchamuncha

  65. Did anyone notice there are four piggies and not a single poopie in sight? Are they all litterbox trained? Ack! I want!

  66. Yum yum yum! What sweet lil piggies. They deserve all the watermelon they can eat.

  67. Katrina says:

    I have to go the get Abbey-dog (Killer), some new food and a new collar. I swear to the Flying Spaghetti Monster, if I buy a guinea pig it is YOUR FAULT! This may take a while. The Agnostics Prayer? *OOOOOOOOOh Snerkity snerk* Ramen.

  68. This is perhaps the cutest thing ever on CO imho. And thats saying a lot!! Its making me miss my piggie. They are just the sweetest little buggers.

  69. Oh and the hair clip? Redonkulous!!

  70. Lerrinus says:

    I wish I wasn’t allergic to g-pigs! 😦

  71. Katrina says:

    Lerrinus, if it will help, I’ll wish you weren’t allergic to guinea pigs, too…

    I miss the wheet, wheet, wheet…..

    I have not gone to get Killer’s food and collar yet, so the threat still stands…… it will be all your fault! I think I need to volunteer in the Humane Society sooooooon to get my fix of noisy little furry things.

  72. 5^^now8ing says:

    Ooooh, Katrina! *Great* idea! Our Humane Society has just moved to our end of town after elevnty-twelve years of too-far-away. *Must* start volunteering!

  73. 5^^now8ing says:

    ‘Cause I’d get *kilt* if I brought in any more animals — five cats & a dog are kinda our limit. 😦

  74. CoconutCheez says:

    OMG PIGGIES! *dies* MAKING HAPPY NOISES! *come back to life at the sound and dies again* ❤

  75. omg that is the cutest fricking thing I’ve ever seen

  76. I freaking LOVE this. This is basically how I eat my watermelon, too.

  77. curiosityfreedthekat says:

    OMG I was dying from the first vid, and after the piggies eating grass I am officially dead. The gray one…the looks he gave…

  78. They are so cute. I have never seen such a cool thing. Man they are fluffy tings.

  79. cute but my mum is algic to em
