The World of Chinchillas
Photo Gallary | Favorite Links | Care | Contact Me


This site is devoted to one of my favorite animals, the Chinchilla. Chinchillas are from the Andes Mountains. The look like accross between a squirrel and a rabbit, but can hop similar to a kangaroo. There was a time when these cute little softies were used to make coats. I have heard that it took over 200 chins to make 1 coat. What a sad loss !!! The good news is that there are laws prohibiting this kind of cruelty now. We are privilledged enough to still have these wonderful little creatures in existance today. They have been called the softest animals in the world, since their fur feels just like velvet.

We plan to do breeding in the near future, so don't forget about us !!! Come back soon to see the baby pictures !!!
