Chili was my first chinchilla and whe we got her, her pet store had just burned down and my parents and I helped the animals that survived with medical treatment . The owner heard that I was planning on starting a breeding program and gave two chinchillas to me for helping with the animals. unfortunatly the other chinchilla died from unknown causes soon after we got her. Chili had always been very calm and we thought that she was just nervcous and settling in. later I knowticedshe had problems jumping and alwayed tilted to one side. I gave her some time to heal but she got worse and we took her to the clinic, gave her some antibiotics and some water. we found out that she had a nerological deseis. she is much better but is still a little off. Chinchillas normally only get this diseas when they are very old, so we are guesing that she is aroud 20 years old, so she will not be breeding, however I do not plan to sell her.
Zonko Standard Gray
Zonko is the male in my first colony. His funky name is from Harry Potters Zonko's Joke Shop. He is smaller that all of my females, as most males are. He is a bit more ccalm than some of the others and spends most of his time on their granite cooling blocks. He does enjoy exploring new areas however, jumping around until he sees the others settle in. He is a very good parent unlike most males who normally mate and leave the moms with the kits. He is very good at trying to take care of the babys and he is wrather social compared to other chinchillas.
Ash Medium Ebony
Ash enjoys hiding in her fleace poch when she nibbls on hay cubes and is a great mom. everytime a kit crys she is there in a flash just like the other mothers. they all tend to care for kits in there colony even if they don't belong to them. she is very sweet, even if she is s little scared of new places. She is named for the black gray contrast of her fur. Ive noticed that she enjoys jumping from platform to platform without using the ramps and rebounding off walls. This could make a her a little axident prone, but we make sure she is ok.
Olive Medium Ebony
Olive looks a lot like ash with her fur, but she was named after black olives, a favorite topping for salads and pizzas in my family. She is also a good mom always caring for her kits and making sure they are ok. She is wrather layed back but doesnt like beeing picked up, but once she is in someones hand, she begins to calm down. She gets very vocal when people and or chinchillas put her in a situations, like blocking her in an iglue. we are slowly training her to be more tolorant of people which can be difficult when you get them as adults with premade habbits.
This you lady is named because I just twisted the word beige and i like the way it sounded. I tried to name her somthing else but the name was stuck. She has some unique markings on her ears and she is very photogenic. when trying to take photos for this website, she is by far the easiest and most cooporative. She gets a bit jealouse when someonne else gets a treat, and sometimes tries to take it from them, but we make sure that she goes away and leave them alone. We then wait a little bit and make her do her own good thing and get her own treat. like the others she is a good mother and help wit hother kits as well and is very social.
