Potty trained: No.

BFF: None. We tried bonding with another chinchilla in rescue (Chowder) and the did not get along. He may do well with the right chin.

Other species pet has been exposed to and reaction: He lives in a house with two cats and a dog but he doesn't seem to really notice them. On one occasion our cat tried to play tag but he was to busy investigating new things and ignored her. See above regarding chinchillas.

Health concerns: Chili was diagnosed with malocclusion. He will need regular back tooth grinding in order to manage his condition. Please contact us for more information.

Behavioral concerns: None

Other notes: Chili is one of most outgoing and friendly chinchillas I have ever met. He's not a fan of cuddling but will let you pick him up if you have to, although he prefers to come to you in his own time. Once he is comfortable with a person and place he likes chin scratches and climbing all over you. His favorite locations: running across your legs, climbing on your shoulders, and playing with your computer keys.
