Chinchilla Care 7 Years, 5 Months ago Karma: 1  
The chinchilla (Chinchilla lanigera) originated from the Andes mountains of South America. The Spaniards named the animal Chinchilla, which means "little chincha," after the Chincha Indians who use the pelts to decorate their ceremonial dress. Chinchillas are known for their soft and luxurious fur, and they have nearly been trapped to extinction in their native countries. In the United States there are now over 3000 ranchers and growing populations of pet chinchillas.

# Their average life span as pets is 10 years of age, but up to 20 years has been reported.

# The female, averaging 500 to 600 grams, is a little larger than the male at 400 to 500 grams.

# The gestation period is very long (111 days) which gives rise to very precocious young that are fully furred with teeth and open eyes at birth.

# They are able to walk within one hour of birth and are eating solid food at one week of age.
