|Species:||Chinchilla||Color:||Silver Or Gray||Age:||Young|
Willow and Wisp are two 6 month old female chinchillas. They are wonderfully sweet and love attention and soft petting on their luxurious coats. Both girls must be adopted together as chinchillas need to have a buddy, and since these two have been together likely from birth, they will not be separated.
If you have decided to add a chinchilla to your family, you want to make sure she is happy, healthy, and safe. To do this you need to have everything necessary for your chinchillas well being. A proper chinchilla cage needs to be chew proof and at least at least 16″ x 20″ x 16″ minimum in size per one chinchilla. In their cage you should provide wooden shelves for perching and climbing (and chewing!), a place to hide (you can even use a cardboard box with an opening cut out), pellet bowl (not plastic as they will chew and ingest it), water bottle (glass), a wheel (do not use wheels with mesh like openings as your chinchillas feet will get stuck and that can lead to them breaking their foot or even worse, their spine, which is fatal), and safe non-chemically treated chew toys (willow is a favorite). Chinchillas need a stable diet of timothy hay unlimited everyday, chinchilla pelleted foods by Oxbow, ZuPreem, or Mazuri brands as well. Chinchillas need exercise and human companionship to live a long and happy life. Remember, chinchillas are not a pet for children, they are a long term commitment of over 15 years.
ADOPTION FEE- $150 for the pair
