Default Hair Loss on Tummy

Niko is now around 15 months old but could be older. I've noticed he's lost hair on his tummy.

His bedding isn't damp and is on paper bedding (fitch) never had an issue. He doesn't appear to be itchy or have dry skin. He's eating and drinking normal and is still very active.

Is this potentially an old age thing or could there be an issue?

I'll add a photo tomorrow in day light but I'll attach a vid from tonight: https://youtu.be/pfRZUIMegzU

That’s quite normal in old age & doesn’t look like anything to worry about.

It may be a dwarf thing, I haven’t seen it in my Chinese but quite a bit with my Russians & with other people’s robos.

Ah ok then. That's probably why I haven't seen it before
