My Hairless Guinea Pig, Ivan
As well as bettas, I am also a caretaker of Ivan, an albino skinny pig (hairless guinea pig.) He is such a spoiled little brat. :lol: He turns his little nose up if I don't give him the right fruit (and how am I supposed to know? I don't speak guinea pig. :shock:) and he lives in his two story fleece mansion, with a sheep-wool cuddle-cup, 2 pigloos, lots of hay, and fresh veggies everyday. Though he is such a sweetie. :tongue::love: I know some of you will be thinking, "Oh my gosh that thing is UGLY!!" But I don't mind. He's an... "aquired", taste, shall we say. ;-)

He is cute! Unlike some of the other Skinny pigs. I have a hairless rat, my self. Does he get dry skin easy?

^^^ lol i dont think its a pretty animal either tbh... not my cup of tea at all :-( i luv hairy fluffy things. or fish or reptiles, but a hairless gp is kinda deceiving the point imo lol

lol yeah I completely agree with those of you who think he is so ugly he's adorable ;) He's a little wierd that way...
TheJadeBetta, No, he doesn't get dry skin easily, though in the summer we have to put susunblock on him so he doesn't burn up when he goes outside.

Agreed! That little hairy muzzle (snout?) is a riot.

Yeah, the hairy face just cracks me up. A face only a mother could love.

I think he's CUTE!! I love albino animals anyway, but a hairless g.p. looks like a little piglet! :) So darling with the patch of fur on his face.
