Keep Score As These Guinea Pigs Play Bowl Ball!

A bit of training for these guinea pigs provides a fun time with a ball and two bowls.

Two cute guinea pigs demonstrate their "basketball” skills, according to trainer Barbara Heidenreich. The pigs mostly alternate picking up the tiny whiffle ball to place in the bowl for their team. A treat reward keeps the guinea pigs coming back for more. 

I love it when a guinea pig picks up the ball and sort of jerks back and forth, and when they both go for the ball, like at 1:59, it’s precious. And it sure looks like they are having fun. Actually, forget about keeping score!
