This Naked Guinea Pig Loves To Pose With Fancy Things And It's Melting Our Hearts

You've probably seen or heard of naked mole rats and hairless Sphinx cats, but have you ever heard of a hairless guinea pig?

I hadn't until my coworkers and I somehow started talking about it, learning that one of my coworkers is completely obsessed with them. And after seeing this cuddly one, I can absolutely see why!

This hairless guinea pig, or skinny pig as they're more popularly called, is Ludwik.

Skinny pigs are 99.9% hairless — they only have hair on their noses and a tiny bit on their feet, so they need to be kept super warm.

Because they have very little hair, they make for great pets for those who are allergic to animals with fur!

They kind of look like extremely miniature hippos.
