Long Life

Chinchillas are members of the rodent family, but unlike other commonly kept rodents, they can live 15-20 years!

Vet Specialists

Chinchillas are generally a hardy pet, but if they do get sick or injured, they will need care from a specialist only. No dog or cat vets for these guys!

Adult Pets

Chinchillas do not usually like to be grabbed or held for long periods of time. These are not lap-pets and do poorly as pets for children.

Temperature Sensitivity

Chinchillas are very sensitive to temperature and heat, and could die instantly if you do not leave the air conditioning on for them during warm weather months.

Endless Chewers

Chinchillas need an endless supply of wooden chew toys and other items to keep them busy so they do not get bored and exhibit behavioral issues.
