    Lightbulb Can rats eat cucumbers?

    I'm not sure if rats can eat cucumbers and if they can't what will happen if they do eat it?
    Isn't it ironic, how we kill flowers, because we think they're beautiful?

    Mine like cucumber. I don't feed it a lot though cause it's really watery and could prolly cause diarrhea if they have it too much.

    "Watery vegetablesThese include cucumber, lettuce, celery and similar vegetables. The key thing being their water content. These vegetables can be useful in summer or when traveling or showing your pet as they provide a good source of moisture in an environment where your pet may not be drinking enough to keep them well hydrated. The most useful of these is cucumber. It is worth limiting the amount of lettuce fed as it does cause loose stools very easily, it also has a soporific effect on rabbits (drugs them) though there is little evidence to confirm this happens in rats." <-- from link:
