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?
Chinchillas are exotic pets with specific needs. You can’t keep one in an empty cage; there are things that all chinchillas need, and without them, they can become ill or severely stressed and unhappy.
Owning a pet is pointless if you never see it. So, you want to keep your chinchilla somewhere you can interact with it, but also somewhere it won’t get stressed. Where’s best?
You need to provide chinchilla enrichment for your pet. Especially important is something for it to chew on, as if you don’t offer anything, your chinchilla will chew its cage bars and damage its teeth. So what should you give it?
