I recently took in two chinchillas that the owner could no longer care for Before I bought this book, I knew nothing Once I read the last page, I have since been able to teach others about proper Chinchilla care.
I HIGHLY recommend this book for every beginner This book an an excellent resource on all things chinchilla related The chapters are organized nicely for referral, and it s an easy read written by a knowledgeable exotic veterinarian.
a vet wrote this one, so as can expect, it has a lot of technical information for the little guys pictures kind of lacking and repeated chins but still pretty nice very informative book for the first time owner helps you really think through if getting chins are for you and gives you the technical information you need to get started and beyond.
I just got a chinchilla and this book was INVALUABLE I thank you and Chin Chin thanks you By the way they are great little pets
