WITH HIS hairless body and pink skin you could mistake this animal for a piglet rather than a rodent. Pim from the southern part of the Netherlands is in fact a Skinny Pig, a type of hairless guinea pig. Skinny pigs are as healthy as ordinary guinea pigs, they just typically only have hair on their muzzles, feet and legs. Today’s Skinny Pig originated with a cross between haired guinea pigs and a hairless lab strain, traditionally bred for laboratory use in dermatology studies.
