Chinchilla laniger


Feel free to explore this website designated to teach you more about a chinchilla. Not only are chinchillas interesting organisms, but they also make great pets.  I have had the opportunity to own two chinchillas in my life and they were very friendly and amazingly clean pets. Chinchillas have always been interesting to me for many reasons. Chinchillas are listed as endangered species, and protected from hunting by the law. Hopefully, people will learn to appreciate these wonderful animals without harming them so they do not become extinct any time soon.
