Hermey is one of four young male chinchillas who were left at a Petco in Manhattan. They were all very scared and had been chewing their fur (barbering) out of stress. Since being brought to foster care all of these boys have been eating like crazy, gaining weight, taking dust baths, playing and running in their wheel. Their fur is all growing back, and they are definitely coming out of their shells!!
Hermey will ideally be adopted out with his brother, Rudolph, but we are amenable to him being adopted out as a bonding buddy for another calm, male chinchilla.
