For this week's animal Instagram spotlight, we would like to introduce you to Ludwik the Guinea Pig! Ludwik is just another amazing example of the 'bald is bold' look. No hair no problem! A self described 'zero to hero' story, this naked guinea pig from Poland has quite the story! He went from an abandoned shelter to becoming an Instagram celebrity in less than a year! After scrolling through his feed, it is clear to see why! Ludwik is not only a fashion icon, he also enjoys sitting in cafes. Truly a sophisticated fella!

Ludwik is a true charmer and always aims to inspire positivity! Guinea pigs may not be as popular of house pets as cats or dogs, but they really should be!! These tiny bundles of energy and cuteness are the perfect cuddle buddy. Picture this: you are laying down, relaxing, reading a book…BOOM there's a sweet little guinea pig borrowing against your tummy. Perfect night, achieved.

Time To Boop The Snoot: Guinea Pig Edition

Guinea Pigs are sweet social companions that require daily interaction! They are a member of the greater rodent family and often kept as pets. The average life span of a Guinea Pig is around 7-8 years and they usually grow to be around 8-11 inches long! But that's enough about the facts, what we have decided to focus on today is the boopability factor. 

Many animals have sweet boopable noses, but the Guinea Pig's nose is unique and in our opinion, extra dextra boopable! Noses are often an underappreciated part of animals. We are here to state once and for all, the importance of the boopability factor! We believe that animal noses are one of the sweetest most awwdorable parts of all nature's creatures. Guinea Pigs have a little layer of floof on their noses that just adds a little something extra! Enjoy these cuties and their boopable noses!

Time To Boop The Snoot: Awwdorable Animal Noses

Noses are an underrated body part in my opinion. Especially on animals. They use it to both smell you and remind you that you haven't pet them in a while. Sometimes they're wet. Sometimes they're dry. But noses are both practical and a very cute way to express curiosity. And if you ever wonder if you're looking great that day, don't bother! Because if you smell like a good version of yourself, that's what makes the animals think you are beautiful. And that's what's most important.

Rabbits, cats, and dogs oh my! But also cows and guinea pigs and just about every mammal with fur... Below you will find 12 pictures of the sweetest little noses. Some of them are creeping up to the camera. Some of them are just plain models. Werrrrrk!

Let's be honest with ourselves: guinea pigs could easily become the new cats of the Internet.

They're cute, fluffy, and heart-melting. 

Having been domesticated in South America for thousands of years, they're one of the longest-serving companions to humans and today are the pet of choice for many children and adults alike. With their soft squishy bodies, cute little ears, and their easy-going demeanor, if you're looking for a cuddly companion you can't go far wrong.
