Chinchillas are playful, friendly and VERY intelligent. They re creatures of habit and like their daily routine to be as normal as possible
Chinchillas are nocturnal but, because they re sociable, they will adapt their routine so you can play with them, but they d be grateful if you would do it at the same time every day
Chinchillas are incredibly cuddly with all their soft, thick fur so they all seem incredibly cute.
There are two types of chinchilla The Chinchilla lanigera with a pointed nose and angular face and the Chinchilla brevicaudata larger than the lanigera with thicker neck and shoulders but a shorter tail. Through selective breeding, there is a wide range of coat colours. These include Silver, White, Platinum, Black Velvet, Sapphire, Rose Apricot, Chocolate Brown and Albino.
Your Chinchilla will need a balanced diet and fresh hay to provide the fibre, vitamins and minerals it requires. It may also need a gnawing block and safe twigs to chew to help with dental ware.
Their diet must be low fat and they should never have sunflower seeds or peanuts. They can become overweight easily and it can be fatal.
Chinchillas need feeding everyday morning and evening . A good quality earthenware bowl keeps food dry and clean preventing the Chinchilla from tipping the food. Bowls must be cleaned after use.
As you want to play and handle your Chinchilla you can treat your pet with an occasional piece of apple or carrot.
If you re changing your Chinchilla s diet, introduce the new food gradually. Mix one quarter new food with three quarters old on the first day and then increase the new and decrease the old over a 10 days.
Some natural treats for your Chinchilla are fresh grass but NOT grass clippings carrot and parsley. However, too much green food can cause diarrhoea.
You need to provide plenty of room for your chinchilla to eat, sleep and run around. Chinchillas are social creatures and should be kept in single-sex pairs or groups.
Chinchillas need to be kept indoors. The temperature in the room should be constant, away from direct sunlight and draughts, and out of reach of any other pets.
Chinchillas need good, secure, roomy housing. They should be kept in a large cage constructed from wire that includes a climbing area, a sleeping box and a daily fresh sand bath. Buy the largest enclosure you can afford because they will spend a great deal of their long lives in this cage.
You need to put your cage in a room where there is a constant temperature, which must NOT reach more than 80 degrees Fahrenheit 27 Celsius as they become stressed and could even die. In the UK, Chinchillas should never be housed outside because of the fluctuations in climate.
In the Spring and Summer, you can allow your pet to exercise outside, as long as you have a suitable, secure run, or perhaps an aviary. But always bring them back in at night.
Never keep Chinchillas in a plastic cage, as they can gnaw their way out and if plastic is ingested it can be very dangerous. Don t forget they will need somewhere to use their Bathing Sand every day as well.
Cages should be cleaned out on a regular basis. This is especially important in warmer weather in order to prevent flies being attracted to the cage.
Every day Remove any soiled bedding
Once a week Remove all bedding. Thoroughly sweep out all the soiled bedding. Rinse with warm water and mild detergent and wait until dry. Spray inside of cage with a safe cleaning product and wait until dry. Replace with clean bedding check for signs of mould etc.on bedding and discard if necessary .

Customer reviewsDONT BUY PLEASE
This product is TERRIBLE. DO NOT BUY First of all, the first ingredient in this is wheat chinchillas can t have wheat I didn t realize what they had in the food before giving it to my chinchilla, which of course was my fault. After giving it to my chin I realized he had a lack in energy. when I touched him he d bark, which is weird since he s social. when I read the ingredients in the food I realized why it was so bad. Most of it is just treats please don t buy, i m scared for my chinchilla, I love him very much and hope your chinchilla stays safe. Again, please don t purchase.
