Little Thai MonkeyRatPig Thing

Does anyone have any idea what this is?  It was sitting in a cage outside some Bangkok restaurant (to be eaten? or just as an oddity?)  It’s not a gerbil, not a guinea pig…  So what is it?  Kinda cute, in an ugly way….

    It's a hairless guinea pig. Some call them "Skinny Pigs":

    Thanks, L… I was worried it was something silly and generic. :P
