This is not reliable.
Chinchilla’s cognition of external things mainly depends on smell. A person often feeds chinchilla and cleans the cage. By distinguishing human behavior and smell, chinchilla will know that you won’t hurt him, and will give him food. He will gradually establish a certain trust with people, no longer evade, and some can have some simple interaction with people.
When the owner changes or meets a stranger, the naturally timid chinchilla will immediately keep alert, but after a period of time, after getting familiar with the new environment and its owner, this trust is gradually established. However, this time may be longer than the first time, and the owner needs to be more patient.
Wild hairy mice like dry and cool environment. They live in arid areas with the least rainfall, lack of vegetation and desolation all year round. They mainly live in high mountain rock crevices and random rock heaps at an altitude of 360-2100 meters. They take the crevices as caves and emerge at night. They do not like strong direct sunlight. They are nocturnal animals.
The hairy mouse likes to cook and live in groups, is good at jumping, moves quickly and has developed hearing, and can emit various kinds of calls; when frightened, it sends out a long alarm like crying, keeping other animals away from it; when angry, it makes a hissing sound like a snake or a snoring roar; when it is angry, it makes a soft cooing sound like a pigeon.
The hairy mouse has a gentle disposition and seldom fights. Once the male and female rats get along, they are inseparable and harmonious. The vision, hearing and olfactory abilities of the hairy mice are very developed, and they are very sensitive to the changes of the surrounding environment. If the male and female rats bite, the female often wins.
There are many kinds of food for hairy mice. Wild hairy mice live on the stems and branches of fresh and juicy herbs or shrubs, and also like hay and plant seeds. The food consumption is not big, is used to eat many times in a meal. When feeding, the hind legs sit up and use the small claws of the forelimbs to deliver the food to the mouth. Quick and quick.

Many businesses will tell their friends who plan to keep a chinchilla that they only recognize one owner in their whole life. This statement is unreliable. It can only be said that it is easier for a chinchilla to get close to people when they are young. Like many animals, chinchilla has a sense of closeness to its owner, which is a normal conditioned reflex. After the replacement of the new host, due to the unfamiliar environment and the new host, they will show the behavior of ignoring people and anger, which are normal reactions. Therefore, if you have raised an adult chinchilla for some reason, you should have certain psychological preparation and be patient enough to get close to it, and you should not give up easily. DC adopted many adult chinchillas. It took nearly a year for DC to accept its new owner. Before that, it would stand up and hum, and even pee at people. By constantly feeding food and stroking (the best position is at the neck), he began to get familiar with the new owner, and now he would happily run to the cage door to look around. We should not hate the cat because it is not close to the breeder. There was a female breeder who did not feed, beat the cage, or even grabbed the chinchilla and threw it in the cage. First of all, we should condemn this behavior, which means that she has lost the ability to manage and protect animals. This chinchilla was later picked up by DC. The 8-month-old cat weighs only 340 grams (normally it should be around 500 grams). It is as thin as a log, and has Trichoderma. It is particularly afraid of people. DC felt very uncomfortable at the first sight. I still felt the same when I wrote this paragraph. But I’m glad to tell you that this chinchilla has recovered and is no longer afraid of people. Its weight has risen to 460 grams (its body size has been unable to increase). So what I want to tell you is that chinchilla doesn’t know only one owner. She knows who likes it and who cares about her. Picture 1 picture 2

What is a chinchilla
Chinchilla is a kind of hairy mouse, which is the general name of the rodent order, the family Trichoderma. The hairy mouse is small and fat with long, fluffy hair on its tail. The back of the whole body is covered with uniform fluff, which is as dense and soft as silk.

Generally speaking, the stomach, tail, hind foot and PP are not allowed to be touched. But some of them are OK. It’s individual. It’s not common.
I feel that it is. The first day I hold my chinchilla, he climbs up to my hand, and there is no food on my hand. Then every morning when he sees me get up, he will go to the cage and put his hand at the door. Then I open the door and jump on my hand honestly. I will put him on the bed and let him sleep. But his disadvantage is that he likes to be at my feet or at my feet The first time he didn’t hold her to play on the bed was the first time he was angry. He jumped to the other side of the cage and pulled cotton to vent his anger. I know he was angry when he ignored me for the first time. I didn’t know what to do to close the door. I didn’t expect that he was more angry and ran into the cage directly Head, scared me, I went to open the door, he himself jumped up on me, he has never bitten me from his first day to now, he is very good, I touch him when he eats, he is also very happy, there will be many people say that chinchilla hates the smell of smoke, but every time I feed him, I feed him with cigarette fingers, my husband has no smoke smell, my husband always wants to get close to me When my family’s chinchilla, I always take raisins in my husband’s hand and run away in a second or two at most. But I feed my baby food It’s OK. He can eat on my stomach and go to my feet or my butt after eating
Chinchilla is very docile and lively. It likes to jump around, be active and full of curiosity. It sniffs every new thing first, and then bites to study it. Chinchilla belongs to plateau animals and is not easy to get sick. Chinchilla is very clean and has no parasites. Chinchilla can take a bath with sand, and can spend the weekend by itself without worrying about taking care of it. As a single vegetarian animal, chinchilla’s feces are oval, dry and granular, and have no taste, so there is no problem in raising them indoors. Chinchillas are soft and don’t shed as much hair as dogs and cats. If you want to raise chinchillas, it is recommended to start feeding the kittens after weaning at the age of 2-3 months, so that the chinchilla is most likely to reach a tacit understanding and closeness with its owner. But even if you start raising adult chinchillas midway, they can also respond to the care of their owners. Chinchilla doesn’t recognize and listen to only one owner all his life, but it often “selects” a person who is most close and dependent among the owners who care for them.
Chinchilla is a gentle and gentle baby with an average life span of 15-20 years. It doesn’t have any initiative attack. It’s just two moves to escape or pee at the enemy when encountering the enemy. When he trusts you, he will be very happy to play with you, lively, active like a child, like to jump around. Naturally timid and lovable, he will hide for the first time when there is any disturbance. Each chinchilla has its own personality, clever, mischievous, reserved or indulgent, but the common point is that she needs you to love her, pay attention to her, protect her, and don’t try to educate your chinchilla with corporal punishment, which will cause its rebellious psychology to its master, and make him not believe that you turn a blind eye to you.
When raising chinchillas, pay attention to:
Summer is a sad season for chinchilla. Because chinchilla has thick fur, it is better to turn on the air conditioner at home to reduce the indoor temperature when the weather is muggy in summer.
The cage should be placed in a cool and airy place, but not at the air outlet. If the cat has been directly blown by the wind, it will catch a cold.
You can usually use a small amount of snacks to please chinchilla and get close to it, but you can’t feed more, such as raisins, and feed 1 to 2 pieces a day. If you feed more snacks, it will not only make the chinchilla picky, do not eat staple food, leading to long-term malnutrition, more likely to cause chinchilla indigestion, diarrhea.
Genie cage should be placed in a quiet place. If the surrounding environment is noisy, chinchilla will not rest well because of tension.
When chinchilla first arrives at a new home, the owner should not rush to release it from the cage. He should first let him stay in the cage for a period of time to familiarize himself with the new environment and the new owner, and then let him play for a while. The time control can be shortened, and the playing space can also be small space.
When the owner is free, he or she can call the name of chinchilla gently and talk to it. By doing so, the chinchilla can remember its name and its owner’s voice. It should be noted that we must say it kindly and not scold it loudly, otherwise the chinchilla will only be afraid of you and will not be close to you.
If you can understand the name, you won’t recognize more than one person. However, the way to recognize the owner is to choose a person around him who is good to her. In fact, she is not stupid. However, she is not easy to completely trust others, especially the older ones. Moreover, she needs you to pay special attention to her, so that he can listen to you more. And when you are free, you should Give her the benefit He will follow you. Otherwise, it depends on her mood and what you do to her. Chinchilla is afraid of heat, and the suitable temperature is about 25-28. The skeleton of chinchilla is very fragile. He can’t beat him or squeeze his body too much.
