Snickers, the Pet of the Day
Name: Snickers
Age: One and a half year old
Gender: Male
Kind: South American Chinchilla
Home: Irving, Texas, USA
   Snickers, also know as Snick-Snick is my friendly pet who must be handled with care. Snicker is a nocturnal animal, and is very rowdy at night. He's our only animal so he gets our full undivided attention at all times (even when he's trying to sleep sometimes). His favorite treats are Raisins and Rose Hips, he goes crazy when he hears his treats rattle in the package. Snickers is special because at one time these animals were once on the verge of being extinct. It's hard to believe people make coats out of them, but they did, and thousands were killed. Not my Snick-Snick, he's my baby! Chinchillas make better pets than coats!
