Welcome to the Chinchilla Museum Germany
Chinchilla lanigera online
Our Chinchilla (Chinchilla lanigera) is the common
long-tailed chinchilla. It is the size of a small rabbit, crepuscular, and
is found in the Andes of South America. Its name, chinchilla, comes from the
name of a tribe of Andean people, the Chincha, who adorned themselves with
furs from this rodent. In their native habitat, chinchillas live in burrows
or crevices in rocks. They are agile jumpers and can leap up to five feet.
Predators in the wild include hawks, skunks, felines, and canines.
Chinchillas have a variety of defense tactics including spraying urine and
releasing fur if bitten. In the wild, chinchillas have been observed eating
plants, fruits, seeds, and small insects. Chinchillas were brought to the
United States in the 1920s and were domesticated and sold in pet stores.
There are several chinchilla owner pet clubs and lots of information on how
to care for a domesticated pet chinchilla. The native Chilean chinchillas
have been hunted for human apparel since the early 1900s. Around 1900, an
estimated 500,000 chinchilla skins were exported annually from Chile.
Chinchilla pelt is considered by some to be the most valuable pelt in the
world, and coats have sold as much as $100,000. This scale of hunting
seriously depleted the number of wild chinchillas, and the international
trade in wild chinchillas or their skins is now restricted by the Convention
on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES).
