skinny (=name of the hairless breed of guinea pigs) female giving birth, Situation, that´s very rarely seen, becouse their births are mainly nocturnal, even in captivity. This is the last baby in the litter, whole birth takes about half a hour (3 babies). The guinea pig babies are precocial, that means they come to world with fur (except of this hairless mutation) and immediately can run, have open eyes, ears and teeth (opposite to altricial babies – f.e. mice, which are born hairless, eyeless and fully dependent on their parents)
