Chinchillas

Chinchillas are largely nocturnal so will be most active at night. Sometimes they are called crepuscular, meaning their activity peaks at dawn and dusk. They prefer a consistent routine for handling a feeding times and may be stressed out by changes to their routine. Since they are so active and playful, chinchillas need a roomy cage for exercise as well as daily playtime. Chinchillas also are long live, up to 15 years or more. They like dust baths and love to excercise. These pets need to be socialized and will adapt to being handled if gentle and consistent care is used. They do not make good pets for young children.
