I met my first hairless guinea pig today. In fact, it was the first time I'd ever heard of them! The lady said that they are often referred to as skinny pigs, but honestly, they seem as big if not bigger than the coated pigs I've seen. I always thought they were actually quite small under all that hair. Either way, this little girl was adorable. She had a pouch the same that a sugar glider uses, so that she could stay nice and warm in this cold weather.
At first I was sur it would be odd lookiung, but she was just amazing and very social for having just been picked up and introduced to complete strangers. Does anyone else have any experience with these critters?
