||Eight months old|
is a standard grey chinchilla aged eight months living in
Glasgow, Scotland. He is very curious and loves to explore our home
and chew our furniture and skirting boards. He is a bit of an escape
artist and can open most locks! He is a high jumper and a fast
runner. He will run from one end of the corridor to the other
bouncing off the walls at high speed. He is affectionate and likes to
sit on your lap or your shoulder and get his tummy scratched.
However he doesn't like to be held for any length of time - no
chinchilla does! He hides in the most unlikely places but will come
back to you when you call his name.
His favorite activity is to get a dust bath. If we forget it he will
roll on the floor in front of us to remind us! After his bath he is
very happy and jumps up in the air. Another thing he loves is a
raisin as a treat. When I open the box he runs to the cage door and
stares at me until he gets one. He sleeps most of the day and becomes
active at around 7 pm. He makes lots of noises from squeaks to a loud
bark when upset. He has many toys and the one he likes best is a long
cardboard tube that provides him with hours of entertainment as a
hiding place and a chew toy.
