They are active at night and take shelter in caves and crevices during the day. They eat vegetation high in fiber which includes grasses and leaves. They will take dust baths to keep their fur clean and healthy.

The best housing for a chinchilla is a tall wired cage that is at least 24″ wide and 24″ deep. They do like to climb so include ladders and shelves for your chinchilla to enjoy. A chinchilla will chew any plastic caging or shelves easily.

You can use newspaper , pine or aspen shavings for the bottom of the cage. The cage should be placed in a quiet area of the home that stays cool. Among all of the land mammals, chinchillas have the densest fur, with 50 hairs growing from a single follicle.

Their fur can be white, gray, black, beige, or silver. The Chincha people of the Andes used to wear its dense fur and it was then named accordingly. Even though they may look bulky, their thick fur is hiding an incredibly athletic frame.

Among their other traits, chinchillas are fast jumpers and can jump up to 6 feet in the air. Even with their quick healing, as pets, they require a lot of dental care and exercise. In the wild, they keep their teeth under control by chewing sticks and twigs.

Their thick fur then resists parasites as well as loose dander. Chinchillas are native to the Andes mountains in South America. They have also been known to live in parts of Bolivia, Peru, Argentina, and Chile.

In these locations, they live in burrows or crevices in rocks, being the most active during the dusk and dawn. In order to find these creatures, fur traders used to use dynamite to blast open the rock to reveal their hiding places. Behavior When they are found in the wild, chinchillas live in social groups called herds.

They do this both for the social interaction as well as protection from predators, which include birds of prey, skunks, cats, dogs, and snakes. Because they are nocturnal creatures, they have an added layer of protection against predators. For their own food, chinchillas eat plant leaves, fruit seeds, and small insects.

One of these symptoms is fur-chewing and excessive grooming that leaves uneven patches of fur. Chinchillas that live in herds are especially sensitive during their breeding season, which is around February to March and August to September. Because they are social creatures, they are upset when their breeding mate is changed.

At birth, chinchillas are fully developed and can mate after 4 months. During the day, they should be kept in a quiet area and their cage should have enough room to run around since they are so active. Conservation Over the years, their population has dwindled and this is mainly due to over exploitation.

Both species of chinchilla are listed as endangered and approximately 90% of their population has been lost over the last 15 years. Hunting being the main cause of this decline, there has been many policies made to help save the creatures. Their fur is so popular because of its soft feel and is even in color, making it perfect for clothing.

Because the animals are so small, it takes a good many to make any type of garment.
