Personality: Friendly toward humans, Friendly toward other animals, Sweet
Favorite treats: Dandelion drops and Crasins
Favorite toys and activities: Running around the house exploring
Potty trained: No
BFF: He is friendly towards other animals and would be happy joining another chinchilla in a home but would also be happy as an only pet with enough attention.
Other species pet has been exposed to and reaction: He likes to play tag with our cat, visits our pair of guinea pigs in their cage and steals their hay, and completely ignores the dog (small critters make her nervous so she prefers to stay as still as possible while Chili runs over her paws)
Health concerns: Chili was recently diagnosed with malocclusion. Since his teeth are unable to grind against each other properly he will need regular dental check ups to manage his condition.
Behavioral concerns: No.
Other notes: Chili is a total sweetie. Before he came to us he was a classroom pet so he is used to lots of people looking at him and saying hi, he even prefers to get his chin scratches through the cage bars (something that is VERY RARELY recommended). He prefers exploring to cuddling but will happily climb on your hand for his evening treat.
