I just thought I'd share something amusing my OH just said!
He'd never heard of a 'skinny pig' before, so I described it to him then showed him a picture..
'Oh my God ........ that looks like a miniature hippo.'
He was fascinated! Haha :(|)

i have always thought that too - i wouldn't personally have one as they need a lot of care and they are too expensive, but they do look like a mino hippo!

I was thinking - if you shaved a guinea pig (not that you would?) would it look like a skinny pig .. or do they have a different body/face shape ?
