Crazy cavy faces for mint
Lettuce and cucumber are well known guinea pig dietary staples, but have your cavies ever sampled mint? This common household herb can be fed in moderation as a treat.
Mint is one of Poof's favorite herbs, but sometimes the cooling sensation is too much even for her. She can often be spotted making crazy cavy faces while gobbling up entire sprigs at a time.
Belka, Abby-Roo and Revy also enjoy munching on mint leaves, but not to the same fevered extent that Poof does. Peaches usually consents to nibbling on a few leaves before heading over to the hay rack to wash down the strong flavor.
In contrast, Truffle can't stand the aromatic scent and flees in disgust whenever she finds mint in the vicinity. Her scrunched up nose and disgruntled expression say it all: no corner of the cage is far enough when mint is around!
