Nike is a very affectionate people friendly chin, who loves to be held. He is also one of the few chins that makes it easy to pick him up and put him back in the cage :-) His greatest joy in life is eating, and being pet. Nike loves other chinchillas, and will make a great bonding candidate for another older guy.
Nike is a special needs chinchilla because he has chronic tear duct issues. His teeth are abnormal and this sometimes causes him to have drippy eyes. They need to be wiped with a warm compress when this happens. It is not an infection, and as long as they are kept clean he should not need veterinary care for it. His diet is keeping his teeth under control, but keep in mind these may need to be addressed by an exotic veterinarian at some point in the future.
