They do exist . I don't know much about ferrets but remember seeing hairless ones on a website and they had pictures too.

Only hairless ones I know of are those suffering from long term adrenal disease, and that's not full body hairless, just back end or usually just the tail.

I think that's the picture I saw. Guess it was probably just adrenal condition after all.

Like I said, I know nothing about ferrets, hehe.

OMG They look sickly. Ferrets are to skinny to be hairless they look like they arent getting enough food even though thats just how ferrets look (unless they are fat) its just hidden by all that fur.

Yikes, that is sad!

Hairless guinea pigs are cute too. They require a lot of extra care though.
