Ginger & Nutmeg's Info...
|Species:||Chinchilla||Color:||Tan Or Beige||Age:||Young|
Ginger (heterobeige) and Nutmeg (pinkwhite) are a mother/daughter pair. Ginger came from a home without air conditioning and was severely stressed. Ginger had the tendency to chew her fur, but has gotten much better about chewing hay instead. Ginger was surrendered with her mate who has since paired with another male. She was, in fact pregnant and gave birth to two kits. The male has since been weaned and adopted as a friend for a small herd of baby boys.
Nutmeg is a sweetie. Her coloring looks like a homobeige, but with a mosaic father, this is an impossible outcome. With their gentle personalities and beautiful coloring, these girls are some of our very favorites.
Ginger is less than 2 years old. Nutmeg was born on 6/26/12
