Chinchillas

Neutering

If your chinchillas are all male, it’s best to neuter them to avoid aggression.

Quick Tip

Just like rabbits and guinea pigs, chinchillas perform a digestive system called caecotrophy to extract as much goodness as possible from their food.

Aggressive behaviour can also occur in mixed groups – as can unwanted pregnancies – so neutering the males is still a good idea. In all-female groups, the question of neutering doesn’t arise.

Did you know?

Chinchilla's teeth are continuously growing which is why it is important that they have constant access to things they can gnaw and chew on.

Did you know?

They are naturally clean and odourless animals.

Quick Tip

Chinchillas communicate through hiccupping noises, chirps and squeaks.
