Yea....completely different, but I have a Mongolian gerbil and i've seen people put them in water to swim or bathe in, it's really sad! They should know not to do things like that!
Not being rude or anything, there is a difference in being misinformed and doing things without care.

On topic!
Chinchillas! They are cool creatures.
I don't know very much on there care but I hope you find the one you want. :)

You need to be carful that they don't get wet,
They can't regulate their body correctly if allowed to get to wet and it can kill them.
A bath for chinchillas is Buying Chinchilla dusk and putting it in a Duster or any large bottle with a big mouth so they can get in and out easily.
Dusting should be limited and not left in with them as it can irritate their eyes.
I would recommend buying from a breeder as you get better stock then a pet store,
They need cooler temps as higher temps can cause them to drop dead of a heart attack.
80 degees F is to hot, Remember their teeth is very important, the last thing you want is a broken tooth, Don't over feed sweets, and make sure they have lots of things to chew on,
I like the white colors they seem to be harder to find..
chins I use to have. chili, gypsy, spot, dittie and babies

Always in NEED & looking for more Tanks!

its not fair! It turns out that my parents said no. They never keep their promises. :( They said, maybe on your birthday, which is May 29. But I might be able to get 8 female bettas for a sorority.
