Animal fun fact: Chinchillas can’t get wet. Their fur retains too much water and will start to grow mold. So they bathe by rolling around in dust.
Chinchilla fun fact: Chinchillas have around 20 hairs per follicle; unlike humans who have 2-3 hairs per follicle. Because their fur is so dense, they cannot get fleas or other parasites. The bugs will suffocate in their fur.
Chinchilla fun fact: Petting one of those awesome little guys feels like touching a motherfucking cloud.
Buhhh I’ve reblogged this before with the same message but whatever!!
Chinchilla owner here! They come in a bazillion gorgeous different colors, too! And their fur is actually more like 60 hairs per follicle. And they also have the ability to ‘slip’ their fur at any time, which means their follicle releases the hairs and their fur literally just slides off, it’s a defense mechanism so when predators grab them all they get is a mouthful of fuzz.
Dust baths are also like chinchilla crack, it makes them super happy, and when they are really excited they pop straight up into the air in a little skippy jump called ‘popcorning’. They also bark.
