When we use the word 'animal' we always think of something 4 legged with lots of furs. But what if some animals didn't have the fur that we're used to seeing? Would you recognize them then? Just like humans lose hair, animals lose their fur as well.
But since we've attributed animal beauty with their presence of fur, would we like animals who don't have any fur?
Take a look on the below images.
