As a kid, I had many many guinea pigs. I loved them, they were cute, and fun, and relatively easy for me to take care of. I was considering getting another one now that I am an adult, and then I saw skinny pigs. From what I can tell, they are a lot like guinea pigs, but hairless.
Keeping that in mind - if I decide that this is the pet I want, is their care the same as the average guinea pig? The person at the pet shop said that it was, but I know sometimes that people at pet stores don't know everything about every animal, so I wanted to make sure I was best prepared before I took on a new pet.
Do I have to do anything differently with a skinny pig than I would with a normal guinea pig?
