Chinchilla

Chinchillas are intelligent, charming creatures that quickly become bonded to their owners. They are easy to care for and have little odor. Basically nocturnal, chinchillas can be active during the day. They are fast, agile climbers, and they love to investigate everything, chewing up bits of paper, cardboard, or untreated wood along the way.

However, the fecal pellets are easy to remove and have little odor. One peculiarity of chinchillas is their need to bathe in fine dust. Bath dust is commercially available, and at least once or twice a week, the chinchilla should be allowed to roll (bathe) in the dust. When chinchillas are stressed, they will chew their fur off, a process referred to as “fur-barbering.” Diarrhea (soft droppings) may also occur in an unhappy chinchilla.
