Check out that Skinny Pig, man. The Skinny Pig is an almost hairless breed of Guinea pig. They typically have hair on their muzzles, feet, and legs but are hairless over the remainder of their bodies. Some of them have a thin covering of fuzzy hair on their backs as well. A Skinny has skin that is mostly smooth with some wrinkling around the legs and neck, the body is full with no appearance of spine or ribs. “Skinny” is the term used for them to describe the illusion of their visually thinner appearance. The modern Skinny Pig breed originated with a cross between haired guinea pigs and a hairless lab strain back in 1978. Anywho, Skinny Pig.
