If your chinchillas are all male, it’s best to neuter them to avoid aggression.
Chinchillas are incredibly social animals and out in the wild they will live in colonies of more than 100 individuals.
Aggressive behaviour can also occur in mixed groups – as can unwanted pregnancies – so neutering the males is still a good idea. In all-female groups, the question of neutering doesn’t arise.
Having a good insight into the biology and behaviour of your Chinchilla can help you to understand your pet better.
Chinchillas don't pant or sweat which means they are prone to heat exhaustion.
