These creatures are cool because they are just so cute. They are quite nosey little critters, so if you have a chance just look into their eyes and see how they look back at you. They have eyes everywhere. Their claws are everywhere too. Their cages will be pretty cool too, just so long as you add the right ingredients to them. This is to keep them from losing their marbles. While they can now be kept as domestic pets, it is not likely that they will ever outgrow their natural habits.
For starters, cool chinchilla cages that are at least three feet in vertical height need to be considered for these cool little creatures. Because if there is one thing they just can’t seem to get enough of it is this. They love to leap and climb. Install enough natural or artificial branches in their cage and they may just love you to bits for it. Speaking of bits, these guys love to chew, that’s natural for them too. So, be cool and place a few appropriate accessories in their cage to keep their jaws occupied.
They can’t help it because, unusually, their teeth just seem to keep on growing right throughout their lives. You can expect them to live as long as twenty years provided you take good and proper care of them. That’s quite phenomenal when you think about just how small these chinchillas are. Where these fellers are concerned, size really does matter. We mentioned just how big their cage must be. Take number into account too.
Don’t expect just one little feller to grow old all on his own. He’s got to have a pal or two to keep him busy more.
