But his life wasn't all sunshine and filters. Ludwik, who's a special kind of hairless guinea pig called a skinny pig, was in terrible condition when his owner Agata Nowacka found him in a pet shop.

"When I first saw him at that pet store he was so poor and so skinny," Agata says. "He didn't look like chubby Ludwik from Instagram photos." He had pneumonia, a fungal infection and conjunctivitis and it took about six months for him to heal, Warsaw student Agata says.

Now that he's all better, Ludwik is thriving as an Instagram model, where he showcases his passions: healthy nibbles, naps, and er, jewellery.

"He seems to enjoy his photo session, and sometimes he even falls asleep, so I think he feels very comfortable," Agata told The Dodo.
