Welcome to the chinchilla page. Chinchillas are becoming more and more popular as pets so
I'm placing this area on Pet Parade to pass on some information about them to help you make a
choice in pets.
A chinchillas lifespan is 10 - 15 years (some even longer).
They are extremely quick, agile and adept at jumping.
You must be careful when choosing the spot to keep your chinchilla cage. Chinchillas do not tolerate high temperatures so they must be kept in a cool part of your home and they are nocturnal so you probably won't want them in your bedroom.
They require plenty of exercise so they will need to be allowed out of their cages to play.
Young children must be supervised around them at all times.
Birds are natural enemies of chinchilla's, so if you have a bird, you probably won't want a chinchilla. As timid as they are, even the sound of the bird will frighten it.
Most chinchillas are very timid and shy. It will take a while before they get accustomed to you.
They come in a wide variety of colors: Standard gray, White mosaic, Silver mosaic, Ebony and white mosaic, Pink white,
Beige, Beige violet, Ebony, Touch of velvet, Black velvet, Brown velvet, Light/dark pastel, Tan, Violet, Sapphire (very rare).
If you are still interested in owning a chinchilla, please visit your local library and read up on this wonderful species. Both of you will be much happier because you did.
