Chinchillas: 2
Default Need to know

Ive just barely got 2 one year old chinchillas. Completely clueless. Been looking up as much as i can. But one thing i haven't seen amy info on is..if chinchillas are okay to be outside? Not always but for playtime if the temperatures are right. Someone please let me know. If you have any other things that you can tell me that is important to know that would be great too. Thank you...Crystal

No chinchillas should not go outside for playtime. If you have to bring them out of the house, like for going to the vet, they should be in an escape proof cage or carrier. There are way too many things that could go wrong. The chin could escape, it could eat something it's not suppose to, a bird or other animal could swoop down and grab it, stuff like that. Not to mention you would have to have the temp outside below 70F, low humidity, no wind, and nowhere in the sun.

There is quiet a lot that you should know for owning a chinchilla, I suggest you check out posts in the forum, there is a wealth of info here. Namely check out the General Chin FAQs and Housing & Supplies FAQs. It's easier to answer specific question then try to guess what you might know and not know.
