Science Sunday: Chinchillas

238Over Christmas break we visited a friend who had a pet chinchilla.  Oh boy the fun and learning that abounded.
First we learned that chinchillas are nocturnal, and then we learned what they eat and a little bit about them.

But the most exciting part was watching them take a bath.  They come from a very cold and dry area, so they take baths in dust.  The kids thought this was hilarious.  I wasn’t there to see it (we girls were getting breakfast and snack supplies), but I was told ALL about it for the next several days.

So, I give you the “Chinchilla dust bath.”  ENJOY!
