and character she is.
Chins are more playful type pets, than a sit down
and lap type animal. I would recommend getting a
baby if you decide to get a chinchilla. They
usually run about $100. in US for a pet, but
that price can vary a lot.
Another very nice quality about chins as pets,
is they have no claws or fingernails. They have
these little soft pads on bottom of their feet,
so you don't get scratched. I wouldn't recommend
them with small children however, as young children
could easily hurt a chinchilla.
They have a life span of about 25-30 years.
They do need to live indoors, or climate type
controlled setting. Chins come in a variety of
colors but standard grey color is most
common, and other, more rare colors will cost
I found when I was trying to sell babies, that
most people had no idea of what a chinchilla was,
or had even seen them. That made it a bit difficult
to find homes at times, although with such few babies,
it wasn't a problem. The people who did come to
purchase babies had this 1 thing in common:
all of them had either owned a chinchilla previously,
or had a close friend who did and had been around them.
That really says something about this type of animal for
a pet. You can check out your local pet store for chins
possibly, or internet.
