Cute Animal of the Week!

Every week we will choose one lucky creature to be featured as the “Cute Animal of the Week” and our next winner is the Chinchilla!

Fun facts about the Chinchilla:

  • Chinchillas are nocturnal creatures.
  • Despite their size, they can jump up to six feet in the air and use their tail to balance in midair.
  • Chinchillas’ teeth never stop growing and can grow 12 inches each year, so they need something to safely gnaw their teeth down.
  • In order to remove the dirt and oil from their fur, Chinchillas take dust baths by rolling around in fine sand.
