Ring in the New Year with Chinchillapalooza!

Have you been racking your brain to figure out the best way to ring in 2018?

Well, rack no more. We've got just the thing to get the new year off to a cute, furry start...with giant ears.

Chinchillas. And lots of them.

Chinchillas eating, chinchillas playing, chinchillas getting their chins scratched, chinchillas doing tricks, chinchillas stealing shoes...you name it, it's happening in this chinchilla compilation or - as we like to call it - Chinchillapalooza.

Alright. Enough talk. It's chinchilla time:


Those of you with cute aggression (the urge to squeeze, bite, or pinch all things cute) probably rode the struggle bus during that video. But it was so worth it, right?

Chinchillas are rodents native to the mountainous regions of South America. They're active, playful animals with an average lifespan ranging form 15-22 years. If you're interested in learning more about keeping chinchillas as pets, click here.


In the mood for more chinchillas? We get it. Check out these adorable pictures of chinchillas and you'll see why it's only a matter of time before they take the Internet back from cats. Well, maybe not...but they're pretty darn cute, regardless.
