Chinchillas Are Good Pets

Pets are good at taking the stress off of people after a long week at work. Animals are known to make people relaxed. Now, if you are into cute little pets that you can enjoy taking care of at home, then chinchillas will be a good choice for you to pick. A chinchilla is a type of rodent that is native to the Andes mountain range of South America. The name of this animal was derived from the Chincha tribe that was one of the native groups of South Americans. Members of the Chincha tribe wore the fur of these rodents and were recognized as the ones who introduced these animals to the western world.

They make sure that they eat an appropriate diet (there is both a soft food and hard food – monkey chow).

The key to having is a successful monkey is a TIME. Spending a lot of time with your monkey is the difference between having a relatively well-behaved member of the family (with sneaky monkey tendencies) and having a mean aggressive caged animal. And if it is constantly caged and becomes angry and mean – it is not hard to understand why. Our monkey is with us 24 hours per day. Most people that think they want a pet monkey will quickly say, “I can do that – that is not a problem…” But they are not thinking it through.
