That's just the carrots coming out.

In my opinion, you're diet needs to be adjusted. I don't use carrots as much as you seem to. Also, I limit the cucumber to a small treat every so often. Here's a list of foods you can choose from, but don't choose the same thing every time:

I feed carrots and cucumbers together so is it possible that carrots come separately... I am changing the diets. He only use to eat cucumbers in the beginning then I started mixing it with other veggies and teaching him to eat other things too...
