Chinchillas are very agile and can jump around 6ft.
They are native to the Andes mountains in South America and live in herds in burrows
or crevices in the rocks. They are critically endangered in the wild and can now
only be found in Peru and Chile.
Their main predators would be birds of prey and larger mammals including Skunks,
Cats, Dogs and Snakes.
They are active creatures and must be stimulated. Gadget and Chaos have a large
cage with lots of levels to climb on as well as ropes and other toys. They are often
let out of the cage to exercise in a larger area.
Chinchilla’s are herbivores and mainly eat grassy plants in the wild, however Gadget
and Chaos eat pellets designed specifically for Chinchilla’s as well as lots of hay.
