4. extra information/ fun facts This is where the Chinchillas live, the Andes of south America Habitat/Shelter/Region
The chinchillas live in burrows consisting of the smallest cracks and crevices. They live in the Andes mountains for the high altitudes (3,000 to 4,500 feet above sea levels) and dry climates. You can find them in packs of up to 100 chinchillas. They prefer temperatures of 75 degrees Fahrenheit. They also live in savannah grasslands. characteristics/adaptations
The chinchillas consist of many colors: grey, velvet, beige, white, violet and many more. They are born in litters of 1-3, with there eyes open and fur on. There a typical 30-50 grams when born, where adults
are 400-500 grams for males, and 450-700 grams for females. A Chinchillas typical heart rate is 100 beats per minute. They live 8 to 10 years, and are 10-14 IN. long. They grow 2-2.5 inches per year. A cool
self defense system is the fur-drop. This is when a predator bites at him/her, the fur bitten will detach leaving the predator a clump of fur. Chinchillas fur is so thick it can't bathe in water, since the fur can't dry and moss/mold will grow in it. That's why they bathe in dust. Chinchillas are very good jumpers, being able to jump 5 feet above there head. They are very vocal in communication, using grunts, squeaks, and squeals. fun facts (some sad ones too)
