Video Script:: 

as humans we suffer a certain amount of hair loss as we age this is especially true of men who are prone to becoming partially or completely bald as they grow older however most furred and feathered animals don't seem to share this trait at all and keep most of the hair throughout their entire lifetime that's why it's rare to see mammals or birds without the distinctive features we know them by and while a select few like the sphinx cat and the naked mole rat are in fact famous for their natural baldness some can become bald due to stress genetic disorders and conditions such as alopecia today we're bringing you 14 animals you definitely won't recognize without hair or fur welcome to another episode of forever green and if you've never seen what's underneath an owl's glorious feathers you'll be shocked at number two it's incredible how baldness makes some of the largest predators look harmless while turning some of the sweetest and fluffiest animals into unusual and scary looking creatures so let's see if you can recognize some of these animals without their natural fur number 14 bold hedgehog [Music] hedgehog's wrinkly bodies normally have around 500 spikes which not only keep them warm but also protect them from predators like owls cats and foxes however due to a rare zinc deficiency or childhood distress it is possible for these cute little guys to go completely bald at birth unaware that they're walking into a dangerous world without any sort of protection some of these wrinkly little fellas are lucky enough to be picked up by a helping human hand hedgehogs who lose their spikes also require constant care to make sure their skin stays oiled gleaming and healthy which is another benefit of having a human friend caring for them number 13. bald fox to see these brilliant forest creatures without their signature fur is quite an unusual sight and yet foxes do go bald unfortunately it is caused by a parasitic mic called sarcoptes scabia which live under the fox's skin and slurp naturally occurring liquids that are crucial for hair health this is extremely irritating for the poor fox which will scratch at the area leading to notable hair loss even though they're genetically more closely related to dogs foxes are often compared to cats for their agility and slinky bodies if the connection was tough to picture before just look at these foxes without their coats and fluffy tails number 12 bald bear without its majestic fur a bear looks less like a real animal and a lot more like some mystical creature out of a scary fairy tale believe it or not this is actually what a bear looks like when it loses most of its hair baldness and bears might not be the most common occurrence on earth but it definitely still happens and is often due to irritating parasitic infections like the ones found in foxes if you thought the bald bear was a shocking sight wait until you see the owl at number 2 without all its fluff number 11 bald penguin penguins are famously known for their black and white feathers which also help make their species waterproof but what does a penguin look like without all its feathers take a look in its very own way it's still kind of cute but how does the rest of its pack feel about the outcast who knows but one thing's for sure this bald penguin is going to need a little more cuddling in the colder winter months before we move on here's a quick challenge for you if you can leave a like on this video smash that subscribe button and turn on the notifications in less than 5 seconds you will have 10 years of amazing luck hurry up and try it it actually works number 10 bald echidna [Music] echidna have spines like a porcupine a beak like a duck a pouch like a kangaroo and lay eggs like a reptile also known as spiny anteaters these australian mammals are unique in their own right even with hair now a bold and cheena is a whole new level of unusual but hair or no hair they still retain all of their cuteness just look at those adorable rolls and spikes [Music] number nine bald chicken chickens rely heavily on warmth for survival especially right at birth now the cute thing about a chicken being born without feathers is that you get the chance to knit him lots of adorable sweaters and other outfits to help keep him warm these hairless chickens don't seem to be letting their lack of feathers keep them from being of the walk confidence all the way [Music] number eight bald chimpanzee when it comes to biology many would argue that human beings are more closely related to chimps than any other animal on earth and while several biologists would beg to differ there's just something about these bald chimpanzees that makes a pretty convincing argument not to mention they can look a little more intimidating than their otherwise hairier friends similar to us humans chimpanzees lose the hair on their heads with age however for them to go completely bald on their entire bodies usually means they have stress-induced alopecia which can also happen to humans just that it won't look as unusual as on a chimp number seven bald guinea pig [Music] while a hairless chimpanzee can look a little more disconcerting than usual these little fellas definitely earn bonus points for being almost cuter without any fur if you love cuddly pets that don't require a lot of exercise you should try adopting a guinea pig while there are many possible reasons for hair loss and guinea pigs the most common reason by far is microscopic mange mites a painful parasitic condition that can be treated unlike with us humans old age does not cause hair loss in rodents [Music] number six bald deer the sight of a deer symbols of nature's gentle beauty without its fur could be quite shocking to say the least how often does anyone stop and think about what's going on beneath bambi's coat it's a pretty strange sight for sure scientists know that some hair loss can occur on a deer due to rubbing and chewing on fur that is infested with lice an infestation of muscle worms or a faulty immune system may also contribute to hair loss but to this day it's unclear to us why some deers go completely bald [Music] number 5 sphynx cat the main feature of a sphinx cat is its complete lack of fur due to its name many attribute the sphinx's hair loss trait to the belief that they come from warmer climates like egypt but this couldn't be further from the truth while hairless cat species have existed for centuries the sphynx breed was selectively bred in canada to obtain their bald traits the breeding program began in 1966 when a pet cat gave birth to a hairless male kitten to this day most sphinx are descendants from three hairless kittens found in toronto in 1978 not so exotic after all but cute nonetheless number four bald baboon out of all the animals baboons are probably one of the creepiest sights like this four-foot female who was found wandering alone in the african bush by a british housewife in zimbabwe baboons are found throughout central and southern africa living in troops of up to 250 but totally bald and all alone it's no wonder this female baboon had such a long face that said this bald baby baboon is a whole pile of adorable somehow his lack of fur only serves to highlight his snuggly face number three bald rat it's all too easy to confuse a regular hairless rat with the famous naked mole rat however they are not the same species a hairless rat is in fact a rat without its hair most bald rats are hairless rats and they're hairless due to a genetic mutation that causes their hair to fall off just a few weeks after birth in more rare instances rats are specifically bred to be hairless and for lack of originality they're named snakes rats just like their hairless cat counterparts usually these rats are bred specifically to be used in labs for research and not as pets these rats tend to live about half the lifespan of a normal rat because they suffer from respiratory bacterial kidney and liver diseases due to their genetic makeup which weakens their immune system [Music] number two bald owl now we all know feathers make up the bulk of a bird's body but everyone on the internet has been flipping out over what a featherless owl looks like known to be the poofiest birds alive and heavily admired for their cuteness it's quite shocking to see what's really underneath all those glorious feathers an owl without feathers might as well be some kind of alien or dinosaur we don't know about you guys but we are still not over the weirdness of the owl skull this is one of those times we just wish we could press the unseen button [Music] before we reveal number one be sure to check out other amazing videos on our channel and give us a like if you enjoyed this video so far tell us in comments which one of these you like the most and why [Music] number one bald rabbit when most people think of a cuddly little rabbit the first thing that comes to mind are their incredibly soft furs in their fluffy little tails that's not the case with this particular bunny like other animals rabbit have their own skin mite which can cause hairs to come out easily in clumps usually with some coarse flakes of skin attached bald or not these remain some of the cutest looking creatures and anyone in their right mind would want to give them a loving pat on the head and that's it for today's video would you have recognized any of these animals without their feathers or fur let us know in the comments below and if you like this video you're going
