Everybody poops (including your chinchilla). But how much do chinchillas poop? Do they poop on you, and is it disgusting like that of other pets?
Chinchillas take dust baths, not water baths, although it is possible to bathe a chinchilla in water if you know what you’re doing. But how can you, and why would you ever need to?
Chinchillas have needs like other pets, and as they have to live in cages, one that becomes important is the need for exercise. But how much playtime does a chinchilla need, and how can you provide for that need?
Almost all pet chinchillas have orange, even red teeth, which can be shocking for a new owner. But is that healthy, or is it a sign that your chinchilla is deficient in something?
Chinchillas have precise care requirements that you may struggle to meet. If so, would it be less cruel to free your chinchilla and let it live in the wild?
