Surfing the internet, as many of us do to bide our time to find out more about interesting things in the world (isn’t it just wonderful to have this at our fingertips?!) led us to be delightfully enlightened of a breed of guinea pigs with no fur – they look just like a tiny version of a hippopotamus!
No fur? How is that possible? Do people shave them?
Well, short answer is no, they are not shaved – actually it would virtually be impossible to shave them, never mind it being an extremely cruel thing to do too! It is a common misconception that it is assumed that they are shaved.
