Cantaloupes can be dangerous for guinea pigs because it contains high amounts of water/fructose which will mess with the digestive system or even cause a blockage if eaten in large quantities.

The risk is higher if your piggie has diabetes or kidney disease as well due to metabolism problems (Guineas).
