"Chinchillas are wonderful pets, if you know enough about them. They are not easy animals to keep, and if they aren't properly cared for, could easily rack up vet bills exceeding $500.00. They are exotic animals, and will require an exotics vet, not just a normal bunny vet. Chinchillas are unlike any other animal, and if you think you can just feed them bunny food and treat them like a bunny, your wrong. They have very sensitive digestive tracts, and with a chilla, less is more. They need QUALITY pet food, Oxbow, and Mazuri are recommended, they also need the opposite type hay. Mazuri is an alfalfa based pellet, and there for, a quality timothy hay is necessary. Chinchillas need safe woods to chew on. A list of safe woods can be found on many websites. Woods that are NOT treated are necessary. Chinchillas LOVE apple twigs. My 2 chinchillas love apple twigs more than treats! Treats should be few and far between, as sugar is NOT good for chinchillas. They make excellent pets, but you as an owner need to be responsible enough to read and know about these wonderful creatures. Females can spray urine, and they have dead on accuracy, but it is not a NORMAL action. Chinchillas are not cuddley, and if your lucky enough to get one that cuddles like a bunny, cherish it, because you don't usually. They're just too curious to want to sit and be held. "
