Where do chinchillas come from?

Chinchillas originate from South America and belong to the rodents.
They live in the countries of Bolivia, Peru, and Argentina and Chile. Even in heights of up to 5000 m you can find them. There they live in caves or rock crevices. In their habitat they are exposed to strong temperature fluctuations. Their fur protects them well from these weather influences. However, since they do not have sweat glands, chinchillas have problems with hot temperatures. On such days they are then rather nocturnal. Chinchillas live in large groups. Usually a male animal protects several females. But how did it become a pet now? Due to their beautiful fur, they first became known as a fur supplier. In the middle of the 20th century, breedings were formed. Nevertheless, chinchillas are considered to be in danger of extinction, as they give birth to very few offspring. As a pet, however, the chinchilla became popular only in recent decades. Now it is increasingly finding its way into our living rooms.

Chinchilla housing

Chinchillas have a strong sense of movement, they run a lot and jump and hop around. Commercial cages or enclosures do not offer chinchillas any variety or even the opportunity to satisfy their urge to run. Most of the time, even the species-appropriate home-made enclosures are much too small to meet their desire for movement. Actually, this can hardly be called animal-friendly, because the animals can hardly live out all their usual behavior patterns in it. A pair of chinchillas would need at least 5m² of floor space. Thus, any enclosure or aviary to buy falls out of the grid. Before the acquisition of these special rodents, one should deal intensively with the attitude and accommodation.

Nutritional needs for chinchillas

Since chinchillas live up to 5000m altitude, it is almost obvious that the food supply is very scarce. Thus, the vegetation in their original habitat is rather sparse. Chinchillas feed mainly on dry grasses, herbs, flowers, twigs, leaves and cacti. Thus, daily dried flowers, herbs, leaves and also


Roots come on the chinchilla menu. It is best to offer ready-made mixtures with a variety of components. We offer a wide selection to meet the needs of the food specialist. Chinchillas break down vitamins and minerals in their appendix, they then reabsorb them with the feces. Eating poop is therefore healthy for a chinchilla and must not be prevented in any case.

Chinchillas and their health problems

As a rodent, the chinchilla depends on its teeth. The front side of healthy chinchilla teeth is yellow, yellow-orange or brownish due to a mineralized layer. This has nothing to do with poor dental hygiene, quite the opposite. In fact, if the teeth are white, they can break very easily. This is often a sign of mineral deficiency. There is a gland at the anus, which sometimes secretes a viscous secretion. This is the so-called anal gland. Please do not confuse it with a boil or an inflammation! Chinchillas also tend to regurgitate if not fed a species-appropriate food as described above. The intestines are then overloaded and can cause regurgitation. If you see misshapen feces or greasy spots on the springboards, the chinchilla usually has diarrhea. Even if you don't notice it in the behavior of the animal, if it has fecal smears on the fur or even liquid diarrhea, see a veterinarian immediately!

Chinchilla sand bath

Indispensable for fur care and well-being is of course sand bathing. Who has not heard of chinchilla bathing sand? But this is not always suitable. Please use only special chinchilla bathing sand. Bird sand is a quartz sand and too coarse-grained and damages the sensitive fur. Also the anise grains, which are harmful for chinchillas, are found there. Specially rounded quartz sand is suitable, as well as various pumice sands. Danger exists with so-called Attapulgit and Sepiolith sands. The angular sand dusts can get stuck in the lungs and cause lung problems or even cancer. If you have found the right sand, it should be offered in a sand bath which is at least 20 x 20cm. The sand should be cleaned daily with a sieve. This will leave the urine lumps and feces, as well as hay and bedding in the sieve. Also when keeping chinchillas is thus to pay attention to clean sand bath.
