    They can but since its sugary it should be a treat only. The rind is safe for them to eat too.

    Yes, but not too much, as long as they don't 'fill up' on it. maybe a small piece per week, no larger than their head.

    Because watermelons have a high water content, they are very good for guinea pigs. They keep them hydrated but in large amounts, they can cause tummy problems and even diarrhea. The watermelon that you give to your guinea pig should always be seedless to prevent your pet from choking on a seed.

    Guinea pigs can eat watermelon, but only in moderation. Your guinea pig should only have a small slice of watermelon once a week. This is because most fruits contain a surprisingly high amount of sugar.
