Two Adorable Guinea Pigs Square Off in a Parsley Eating Contest

A video of two adorable guinea pigs squaring off in a parsley eating contest has taken over the internet and for a good reason. It was a highly entertaining affair where the winner was determined in the last seconds.

The video features a “challenger” named Wilburn trying to take the tile from “reigning champ” Milo. Each of the guinea pigs receives a single stem of parsley and wastes no time trying to devour them.

Wilburn gets in the lead, reaching the parsley leaves quicker than Milo. However, Wilburn encountered difficulties chewing the leaves, allowing Milo to make a comeback.

“Challenger Wilbur is determined to beat reigning champ Milo in the much anticipated Guinea Pig Parsley Eating Contest. With each contestant weighing in at 2 pounds 12 ounces, the race is certain to be a close one,” shared Wilburn and Milo’s owner.

It isn’t surprising to see Wilburn and Milo downing parsley quickly. Guinea pigs enjoy eating fresh herbs, and parsley is one of their favorite treats. They will also happily snack on rosemary, dill, and basil. Vegetables are important staples of their diet as well, with carrots, peppers, and broccoli being at the top of their preferences.
