Alpina the Chinchilla, the Pet of the Day
Name: Alpina
Age: Ten years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Chinchilla
Home: Riga, Latvia
   This is Alpina, my sweet little Chinchilla. Her kind is from South America, but she is a pet, and was born right here in Latvia. In the wild they live in the mountains, so that is how she got her name.

      I think she is very beautiful and her colouring is Black Velvet. She feels even softer than velvet to pet! I love this picture, it looks like she is saying her prayers, doesn't it? Really she was begging for a treat, and of course I had to give it to her once I snapped the picture. She's so sweet and very friendly. She never bites, sometimes she will kind of nibble on my finger especially if I have just been holding something yummy, but it doesn't really hurt.

     She likes to run around the room during her play time, and when I am not at home, she has toys in her cage to play with, when she's not sleeping, that is. She is a very special little friend.
