Chinchillas rarely blink, so for your pet to keep one or both of its eyes closed is unusual unless it’s sleeping. But as there’s more than one cause of this potential problem, you may not know why it’s doing so.
There are lots of online guides that say you shouldn’t get a chinchilla wet. They say that if you do, your pet might die. But how true is that?
A pet chinchilla is great fun, but what’s even more fun is having more than one chinchilla. If you do, you could either keep them as a pair/group, or keep them in separate cages. But which is best?
Wild chinchillas don’t have access to the same foods that pet chinchillas do, as they live in a completely different habitat. The question is *how different* is their diet.
If you’re squeamish, look away now. Chinchillas reproduce by mating, like all mammals do. But how do they do it, and how does the chinchilla reproductive cycle work?
