About Ludwik Guinea Pig

Ludwik the Guinea Pig truly lives the “no hair, don’t care” lifestyle. A self described "zero to hero" story, this naked guinea pig from Poland went from an abandoned shelter pet to instagram celebrity in less than a year. Sift through his feed and it’s easy to see why. Whether Ludwik is wearing the most interesting outfits and chowing on his favorite foods, he is always adorable. It’s been a wild ride for Ludwik, from being rescued in a pet store, suffering from pneumonia to ending 2018 with over 245K Instagram followers the tiny Instagram sensation exudes a personality that is unlike any other internet pet-lebrity.
