In my city it is not easy to find coconut. yesterday I found a box of organic coconut water with 1% fructose (it is the sugar found in fruit, it was in the box for standardization) and even less natural preservative (ascorbic acid, an important vitamin for chinchillas). Still, would it be a bad idea to give boxed coconut water to chinchillas?

Giving coconut water to chins at all is a very bad idea boxed or fresh. They can chew on cleaned out organic coconut shells, but the coconut "meat" and coconut water inside is not safe for chins at all.
