And another pic.

These 2 are at the Hamilton SPCA.

They are sooooooo adorable....They actually look like mini Hippos.

And can you believe they can actually swim in warm water.

The only fur they have is a bit on their head.

Ahhh, the appeal of a (mostly) hairless squeaking rodent....
How can one resist?

He's a cutie. Yours???

LOL, posted at same time.
You're so right about the hippo thing.

September 11th, 2005, 02:11 PM
They actually don't really squeak that much..

I wish they were mine..... :D

They are up for adoption at the SPCA.

Yes, they sure do look like little hippos! Do they like to eat toast with peanut butter? Remember the "house hippo" commercial? :D

A skinny pig, how cute! If they were closer I would definetely adopt one... hmmm, transport maybe? LOL My daughter keeps asking for a "naked mole rat" :eek:, I think a skinny pig would be much cuter!!

Skinny pigs are pretty hard to take care of. Please read up on them if you are thinking of getting them. First off, they should be in a bedding like carefresh or Yesterdays News because the pine shavings can hurt their skin. Also, you need to keep them away from a window and/or vent. Since they have no hair, they can get sick easier. They do make excellent pets. Good luck!
