Default Tap Dancing/ Shuffling Female Chinchilla

Hey everyone! This is my first post here! I rescued two female chinchillas six months ago, Chynna and Bijou 💕 We do play time in my bathroom every morning for two hours, during this time Bijou my smaller female will hope onto my cats litter box. It has a cover on it so it allows her to get up higher and have a better view of my bathroom. While on top of the litter box however she’ll start shuffling and thumping her feet. It’s super cute but concerning so I had the vet checked her out and everything is fine! I’m just curious as to what could cause this behavior! Any answers would be greatly appreciated Thank you!

I found they do it when they react to a smell, mine used to tap around a can of beer!

“When I buy cookies I eat just four and throw the rest away. But first I spray them with Raid so I won’t dig them out of the garbage later. Be careful, though, because that Raid really doesn’t taste that bad.”
