Chinchillas As Pets

I am interested in information on chinchilla care and how to maintain them? Are they good pets? Messy/clean?

My adult son had them as pets and he built a beautiful cage for them which he kept in his house. The odor was horrible and the food they require was expensive. They are very cute though. Good Luck.

Hello, They require a "Dust Bath" so that can be messy. They are expensive and do need Veterinary care, but they are cute!
