I Thought It Was A Weird Little Rabbit — Then I Saw Its Face…

Animals in general are naked — for the most part, anyway — but some animals are extra naked.

And unlike us shy humans, these bare beasties aren’t afraid to flaunt it. And maybe that’s for the better. We all saw what happened when we tried to decide how dogs would wear pants.

One such critter is Ludwik. Ludwik is a hairless guinea pig who knows what’s really important in life: food, naps, and loving the skin you’re in. And thanks to his human, he’s sharing this message with the world via Instagram.

He’s surprisingly photogenic, and loves to pose with his favorite snacks, or curled up for a snooze. And his posing has earned him a fairly massive following, too, so it’s clear that he’s speaking to our core values.

If you’ve ever looked in the mirror and felt insecure or inadequate, take a cue from Ludwik and see that no matter what we look like, we’re lovable and beautiful. And that it’s always a good time for a snack and a nap.

Take a look through some of his photos below, and let us know which is your favorite!

Meet Ludwik. Together with his human and photographer, Agata, he’s taking the internet by storm, one snack at a time.

Agata sets up regular shoots with him and his favorite treats in between studying business and political science in Warsaw.

Agata says that Ludwik’s passions in life are snacks and naps, which give him something in common with, well, everyone.

She says that he enjoys his photo shoots, and sometimes even dozes off during them. “He can fall asleep even during his vet’s appointment,” she says. “He could sleep all the time.”

And while he may be living the glamorous life now, that sadly wasn’t always the case for Ludwik. His life started in a subpar pet store, where he suffered from neglect.

“When I first saw him at that pet store, he was so poor and skinny,” Agata recalls. “He didn’t look like chubby Ludwik from Instagram.”

He was also ill with pneumonia, a fungal infection, and conjunctivitis.

Agata spent six months nursing him back to health, and now, Ludwik is living well.

Being as naked as he is, though, requires some special considerations.

But that’s OK. As long as there are snacks.

Lots of snacks.

All the snacks.

Besides Ludwik, Agata also has two Yorkie dogs and a female guinea pig named Rachel. She’s also naked.

And at only a year old, Ludwik is already something of a celebrity online, thanks to his natural posing and photogenic face.

And thanks to Agata, he’ll enjoy a long, healthy life full of love and treats.

And of course some truly blissful naps.

You can see much more of Ludwik on his Instagram, where he makes funny faces and nibbles veggies daily.

Ludwik’s simple but fulfilling take on life can inspire us all. SHARE his teachings of snacks and naps with all your friends!
