What can your Guinea Pigs do with Megazorb?

  • Piddle on it (finally something Slincypig can excel at…).
  • Poop on it.
  • Sleep on it.
  • Run around on it.
  • Generally live on it.

Where can you buy Megazorb?

  • Online
  • Horse / farm supply stores
  • Order it into an independent pet store



  • Being currently separated Peppa-Pea was our chief tester for Megazorb. 
  • There is very little smell straight from the bag.
  • There was little to no dust at all in the samples we received making it a great choice for both humans and pigs with allergies. I have however heard tale that some of the bigger bags are reasonably dusty so it may be best to leave the Megazorb to settle before adding your pigs back into their cages.
  • The light brown Megazorb not only contrasts with Peppa-Pea’s pig poop (yay for alliteration) but tends not to cling to it; meaning poop and hay can easily be removed. 
  • Megazorb & pig poop!

  • As you can see from the picture of Peppa’s litter tray above; the Megazorb wicks away piddle leaving the top layer dry and soft.


  • I thought the Megazorb made for a great Guinea Pig bedding. 
  • There was very little smell even after a few days of not cleaning Peppa’s cage and the wicking action ensured that Peppa was clean and dry even after liberally piddling. 
  • I would think this bedding would be perfect for smelly boars (sorry boars) however due to the texture of the Megazorb you may have to be careful that it didn’t get caught in boar-bits.
