Do Skinnies (guinea pigs) suffer from Mosquito bites or any type of blood sucking insect? Since they hardly have any hair does this make them prone to diseases?
Also, it would like quite strange for a skinny to be pregnant, you could see the babies move ALOT :)) drool

just wondering, not that i am getting a skinny or anything, just my curiosity got the better of me drool

They would be no more susceptible to mosquito bites or diseases than hairy piggies. When pregnant you can see the babies move in the same way as any other pig.

Lisa, thanks for sharing that vid. It was so cute. Looks like the babies are punching her and saying "Let me out!" :)):))
