The Sphynx, also known as the hairless cat, is not actually hairless. Like humans, they have vellus hair. Some of them have their whiskers, others aren't so lucky. Their skin is the color their fur would be. If they had it. But they don't, so it's weird. 

Don't be fooled. Just because they don't have a coat to groom, doesn't mean they are maintenance free. Their body oils, that would normally be absorbed by fur, tend to build up quickly. So they need to be bathed at least once a week. You also have to keep a close eye on them outdoors. Their skin is extremely sensitive and they can easily get sunburned or skin damage.  

Sphynxes are known for their extroverted behavior. They display a high level of energy, intelligence, curiosity and affection for their owners. 
Because they have no pelt to keep them warm they tend to cuddle up against other animals and people, especially at night time. 

Like its celebrity look-a-like, you can often find the Sphynx under some bed sheets.

The African Civet is the only remaining member in its genetic group and is considered to be the largest Civet. The African Civet is well known for the musk that it secretes to mark its territory. This musk has been used to manufacture perfumes for centuries.

Despite its cat-like appearance and behaviors, the African Civet is not a feline. In fact it is closely related to other small carnivores including weasels and mongooses.

This nocturnal animal is primarily a tree-dwelling creature, but it will leave the trees to get food. It predominantly uses its sharp teeth and mouth to gather food instead of using its paws.

Small animals such as rodents, lizards, snakes and frogs make up the majority of the African Civet's diet. They also eat insects, berries and fallen fruits found on the forest floor. It's safe to say they support the five second rule.  

Like its celebrity look-a-like, the African Civet’s striking black and white markings make it one of the easiest species to identify.

The Emperor Tamarin, thought to be named after Emperor Wilhelm II for its long white mustache, is  another extremely small primate weighing in at 1lb. Their small size and long tails allow them to easily leap from tree to tree to avoid their predators and search for their prey. 

They can be found in rainforests throughout Brazil and Peru. Their healthy diet of plants, nectar, fruits, tree sap, fungi, rodents, insects and small vertebrates allow them to live anywhere from 17-20 years. If you think their diet is a little strange, get this -- they are born in pairs. 

Like their celebrity look-a-like, they are extremely territorial and call loudly to make their presence known.

The English Angora rabbit is one of the oldest types of domestic rabbits. They originated in Turkey but became popular pets of French royalty in the mid 18th century. They appeared in the US in the 20th century and are now bred mainly for their long Agora wool. 

There are many different breeds of the Angora rabbit, but only four are recognized by the American Rabbit Breeders Association. Those four are the French, English, Giant and Satin. The English Angora is the smallest of the four and is also more common as a pet because of its teddy bear facial features. 

Like its celebrity look-a-like, the English Angora rabbit is very high maintenance. Its thick and abundant wool needs to be groomed at least twice a week. But hey, at least the wool can be used to make a pair of comfy winter boots.
