Rumble This bold, but beautiful guinea pig lives with his owner Jessica in the Southern parts of the Netherlands. Pim is in fact a Skinny Pig, a type of hairless guinea pig. Today’s Skinny Pig is a cross between haired guinea pigs and a hairless lab strain, traditionally bred for laboratory use in dermatology studies. Skinny pigs are as healthy as ordinary guinea pigs, they just typically only have hair on their muzzles, feet and legs. With his hairless body and pink skin you could mistake this animal for a piglet rather than a rodent.

Because of his hairless body, this piggie needs warm clothes to keep him warm, so his owner Jessica has made him tons of sweaters. Because of him being very cute when dressed in this cozy clothing and cuddling under the warm blanket, Pim has become a rising Internet star. Everybody seems to love tiny Pim!

Pim has lots of animal friends. Dogs, hamsters, chickens just name it and you can find it on his animal friends list.

This pink chubby skinny pig has a healthy appetite. Man, he’s an eating machine! Everything that goes inside his mouth is "grinded" in just a few seconds. Pim’s owner Jessica Pires is very aware of his eating abilities, as she says "Every time my mother comes into my room when the curtains are closed, he will scream until he gets his vegetables."

According to Jessica, little Pim loves all his fans and he loves to be famous. Some of her followers are so in love with him that they would love to see him every day. And for some people he is the best piggy of Instagram.
