|This is my new chinchilla, a little boy, about three years old. He's unsocialized, as he was left in a backyard cage, and finally rescued by the Humane Society. He's very skittish, but doesn't show any signs of aggression, which is a good thing. He seems curious, which is also good and he has a fine appetite, so I'm taking heart in the fact the he was more or less just neglected, rather than actually abused. His fur is matted and he's missing a fair bit of it from his haunches, but I'm confident that with a good sand bath schedule and love he'll be fine.
