Sheba Mini Yak originated in Australia, is not a recognized breed for ARBA but a nickname for Abyssinian cavies that are partially long-haired. Genetically, these animals have one copy of the long-hair allele and one copy of the short-hair allele.

 

Physically, they look like a cross between an Abyssinian and a Peruvian. They are basically a semi-long haired breed but ideally are longhaired rosetted cavies.


The same mix of long and short hairs can occur on a smooth-coated cavy, but there is no nickname for it.

 

They are also known as the "Bad Hair Day" Cavy and but they are adored by many because of their lively and cheerful attitude. They are a very friendly breed.
