There is a lot of information out there on chinchilllas, some of it accurate and some of it...not so much. Before you decide to purchase a chinchilla as a pet, I strongly urge you to do your research from a variety of sites to determine if this wonderful creature is the right pet for you and your family. These animals have a long lifespan if cared for properly, they do require work and special care and are considered an exotic pet so require specialized vet care.
While I know a lot, I do not know everything there is to know about chinchillas and am continually educating myself on the species. Again, I encourage you to research as many different resources on chinchillas and their care as you can. Ask questions from a variety of sources before you decide to purchase.
