Chinchilla

Chinchilla


Chinchillas are nocturnal creatures, but they make great pets because they are low maintenance, quiet, and odorless, with beautiful soft fur. They become quite tame when they are handled from a young age, and can form a bond with their owner. Chinchillas prefer warm temperatures, enjoy dust baths, and need a consistent feeding routine that includes pellets and good quality grass hay. Being active and playful, they require a variety of toys to keep them busy, especially items for chewing.
