Chinchilla, whose scientific name is South American chinchilla, belongs to the mammalian rodent order porcupine American chinchilla family. Because it is similar to the cartoon chinchilla in the movie Totoro made by Miyazaki, it was renamed “chinchilla” by Hong Kong people.

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. As a plateau animal, chinchilla is not easy to get sick. It is clean and has no parasites. Chinchilla can take a bath and spend the weekend by itself. There is no need to worry about taking care of it. The excreta of chinchilla has no smell, and there is no problem in keeping it indoors. Chinchillas have soft fur and don’t fall all over the place. Chinchilla must be fed from an early age, so that when it grows up, it is not afraid of human beings. Moreover, chinchilla only recognizes one master and only listens to one master’s words.
Because the density of chinchilla’s fur is very high, it is about 20 or 30 times higher than that of cats and dogs. Generally, there are two or three hairs in one pore of cats and dogs, but there are about 40 or 50 hairs in chinchillas, so fleas can not survive on them (I don’t know if they are suffocated).
What a mess upstairs. It’s sheer nonsense. First of all, chinchillas and dogs have different habits. They eat all day and shut their mouths. Do you want to starve them to death?
I don’t know how long the owner of the house bought the chinchilla back. As a very independent animal, he was just brought home and left him alone in the nest. Do not disturb him except for feeding. When you wait for 5 to a week, you can try to communicate with him, such as feeding food with your hands, gently touching your head. If he is not willing to do so, don’t be forced to do it slowly. When there is progress, you can tempt him with snacks and hug him. Don’t touch your butt and scratch your tail. They’ll hate you.
There is also a good way to enhance feelings is to let the wind out on you, and then after a period of time can be in a larger space, do not forcibly catch them back to the cage, with bath or snacks to lure them (snacks do not give too much, close the wire).
My first chinchilla DD was forced to hold him at the beginning. Now he has a bad relationship with me. He always pushes my hand and wants to bite me, but he still knocks it gently…
Don’t touch them with food smell. Don’t touch them when they eat. Animals are wild after all… When cats and dogs are eating, you will sound a warning when you touch them, not to mention chinchilla…
It is very helpful for animal to be patient and do not know the essence of the dragon cat bar.
Golden spotted chinchilla (details)
In many people’s evaluation, chinchilla is very lively and active, and has curiosity about all new things. It is a pet that is easy to get close to. Of course, in the process of raising a chinchilla, you will inevitably be bitten by it when playing with him. What’s the right way to do it?
1¡¢ Why does chinchilla bite
They were not familiar with the owner, were frightened or disturbed, mistakenly thought it was food, and got sick.
2¡¢ Be bitten
1. No wound: if the chinchilla just chews and does not really bite the skin, then there is no need for any treatment.
2. Bleeding: if you are bitten and bleeding, first squeeze out some blood, and then wash it with soapy water.
3. Swelling of the bitten part: if the bitten part swells up the next day after the treatment of the bitten blood, you need to go to the hospital to break the cold needle.
Most of the time that chinchillas bite people when we extend our fingers to them, the chinchillas will mistake their fingers for feeding, sometimes with a tentative nibble, sometimes with a heavy bite. Another situation is that because of the poor living environment and timid nature, chinchilla is more resistant to unfamiliar environment and new owners, so as to protect itself by biting. At this time, the owner should give the chinchilla more time to be alone, contact with them with snacks or apple sticks every day, and avoid scaring the cat because of impatience. In most cases, as long as we pay attention to the habits of chinchillas and use the right methods to be close to their play, they will not be bitten. So, how to deal with being bitten by accident. When the wound is shallow and open, it is enough to wash the wound with soapy water and apply iodine. When the wound is deep, wash it with soapy water while squeezing blood. After cleaning, apply iodine wine. If the wound is very deep, small and closed, and there is swelling, a shot of tetanus (5 pieces / needle) should be given. At present, there are no cases of rabies and hemorrhagic fever caused by chinchilla biting. Considering the current epidemic situation of hemorrhagic fever (and the distribution of epidemic areas), I don’t think it is necessary to use these two vaccines. If you are very worried, you can buy psychological consolation. The amount of hemorrhagic fever vaccine is about 15 yuan / injection. You only need two injections of rabies vaccine. You can observe that there is no disease attack in chinchilla within 10 days after being bitten.
It’s OK. I have two chinchillas in my family. When I feed them, I sometimes get mistaken for food and bite my finger. After many times, I wash my hands and I’ve never been vaccinated, and I live well. You should have love for chinchilla. They are very spiritual animals. If you are good to him, he will know. But when he comes to a new environment, he can judge who is the best master for him. I don’t quite agree with him because when my cat comes together, he will come to eat cordially, but if he does Like you, he will be very close to you. Don’t hit them. Chinchilla has a good memory. If you have sex with him, he will ignore you for a long time. Like your family’s chinchilla, it is estimated that you will be blacklisted this time. Try to get rid of your name. Why compete with a small animal?
Under normal circumstances, like rabbits, chinchillas will not bite people aggressively. Unless they are really forced to hurry up, the “rabbits bite when they are in a hurry” is no exception. The reasons for that are as follows: 1) chinchillas are vegetarians and do not have sharp teeth like cats and dogs. They only have “golden big teeth” for chewing grass food
2) Chinchillas don’t attack strange food fiercely, but they are timid and evasive. The only resistance they can take against the enemy is to throw off their hair and run away
Many people see chinchilla standing there motionless, so-called “quiet as a virgin”. Most of the chinchillas will smell carefully at first, move their noses and whiskers, and then quickly move their heads. At this time, many people will be scared by this sudden action, * thinking: he is going to bite me! In fact, the chinchilla didn’t intend to pay attention to people at all. After smelling it, it didn’t matter. It was planning to enter the next round of sleeping or jump out to play.
There is also one thing that is easy to cause the impression of “chinchilla biting people”. The look of chinchilla is very poor. Their understanding of strange things depends on “smell”, then “touch”, then “memory”, and finally “eyes”.
For the stick like things that extend to the front of the mouth (such as human fingers), chinchilla will mistakenly think it is food or grass stalk, and gently gnaw it to judge whether it is “delicious”. This is not hard and won’t bite, but it will cause great psychological fear to the people who are being bitten. People usually shriek and retract their hands and shout “he bit me!” In a new round, the cat will start to scream in a new round.
The way to avoid this is that when you and chinchilla are not familiar with each other, don’t pestle the chinchilla’s mouth with your fingers. Instead, use the palm or the back of your hand to the chinchilla, or hand him hay directly, so that he won’t bite your fingers.
It’s normal… Some rare examples of so-called “rabbits (chinchillas) bite when they are in a hurry”. For example, the chinchilla has been severely attacked by people, or is in a state of extreme panic. If there is no way for them to escape, they may try their best to bite people in order to protect themselves. These examples are not within the scope of our analysis
Finally – if you are bitten by a chinchilla, you don’t need to be vaccinated against rabies. However, the wound is a wound after all, pay attention not to infection.

Chinchilla is actually very good to raise, you just need to pay attention to a few key points
First, it is very timid and courageous. Is it contradictory? Timidity is because it is afraid of the sudden shock of noisy environment. Boldness is what kind of action you can’t imagine with you after a long time. My family even pretends to die in order to compete for favor
Second, although chinchilla belongs to rodents, its digestive system is still very fragile, and the mortality rate is very high once it is diluted
Third, it is not afraid of cold, but afraid of heat, especially sultry
To answer your second question, it doesn’t bite, but if you tease it, it will attack you
Piss all over you and stuff like that
Chinchilla is easy to keep. It goes to bed in the morning and comes out for activities at night. Just feed it grass and give it a bath. If it bites you, you just need to disinfect it. Chinchilla is a good hand. Chinchilla belongs to rodents. It likes to be clean, with smooth fur and beautiful tail! If you are not afraid of mice, you can consider raising one!
Chinchilla is a very cute pet. Basically do not have attack power, encounter the enemy only escape and pee at the enemy.
Moreover, 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.
How could you say that the chinchilla bites? What a terrible idea. Chinchilla is a lovely animal

But even if you start raising adult chinchillas midway, they can also respond to the care of their owners.

The fatal mistake of raising chinchillas
1: Almost all people feed chinchillas on a daily basis, but this is too lethal for chinchillas. The present digestive system of chinchilla evolved slowly from a long-term wild environment. You know, in the wild, nature doesn’t favor such a nutritious meal. In this way, it is slowly destroying the digestive system of chinchilla.
Chinchilla does not have the initiative to attack, if threatened, it will generally use the * * to drive away the other party. The “biting” of chinchillas often appears in new owners. Chinchilla has poor eyesight and can distinguish food mainly by smell and tooth touch. Just arrived at the new host’s side is not familiar with the host’s smell, most will use teeth gently or slightly with a bite to test. This kind of temptation does no harm. Sometimes there may be pain, but there is no need to be nervous. Don’t yell or punish him, which will make the kids who are unfamiliar with the new environment even more afraid. For a long time, the chinchilla will no longer “bite” when it can smell its owner’s smell. For kittens about three months old, the adaptation time is about 1 week to half a month. If you know the owner, if chinchilla “bites”, please pay attention to it. Does chinchilla cough gently on the hand, can obviously feel his small teeth. If so, congratulations. Prove that chinchilla is very close to you. The way to show friendship between chinchillas is to comb each other’s hair, which is to cough gently in each other’s eyes and ears. If he bites you like this, he is flattering you. Some chinchillas also have aggressive biting behavior. It’s mostly because of fear. Usually it is a very hard bite, bite will not easily loosen the mouth. To deal with such a chinchilla, we must first eliminate his fear. Don’t disturb too much, let him get familiar with people and environment. This kind of chinchilla adapts more slowly than other chinchillas. Secondly, you can please him with some snacks. Although he can bite, please pass it to him by hand as much as possible. In this way, he can smell your smell and get to know the host slowly. If we persist in this way for a long time, the situation of chinchilla biting will be improved. Chinchilla is a very clean pet. Don’t worry about being bitten by him. Because he doesn’t carry plague or rabies in his body. It has not been a short time for human to domesticate chinchilla. Up to now, there has been no report of human infectious disease caused by chinchilla. So if your chinchilla bites, please don’t exclude him. The way to enhance intimacy with chinchilla is very simple. It’s snacks. Chinchillas are greedy animals. At ordinary times, longcats, who love each other very much, will fight for delicious food. Raisin is the favorite of chinchillas, but this kind of sweeter snack is easy to make chinchilla on fire, so it is not suitable to feed more. Snacks will affect the appetite of chinchilla meal, leading to the chinchilla picky food. It is recommended that one or two meals a day is enough. It is recommended that Totoro be fed with cereal. Cereal is not a snack, and it is rich in nutrients and has no negative effects. Tickling a chinchilla is also a good way to enhance your feelings. The method is also very simple, with the hand in the chinchilla’s ear root, cheek to neck between gently scratch. When he gets used to it or feels comfortable, he will act like he enjoys it very much. You can talk to chinchilla when you are OK. Although he can’t understand, he can remember your voice. And one more thing, don’t physically punish him. Chinchilla is relatively independent and willful. If he is physically punished, he will drag you into the “blacklist”, and in serious cases, he will ignore you for months. If chinchilla hates you, it’ll point its butt at you. I don’t want to see you. Building a good relationship with chinchilla can take different time depending on the type of chinchilla. Most of the young chinchillas can get close to their owners very quickly, while adult ones need more time.
