Houdini!

Well some of u know that i have a mosaic chinchilla that we thought was expecting. We were right!
That brings the count to 4 Chinchilla's in my house. Houdini being the newest and of black velvet coloration. We are hopeing "he" really does turn out to be a boy to breed with our female beige.
So that makes 1 female beige chinchilla named Cinimon, 1 female mosaic chinchilla named Ivory, 1 male black velvet chinchilla named Ebony (ebony and ivory are our breeding pair), and the newest little bugger named Houdini (like i already said unknown sex and black velvet).

Right now Houdini and "his" moma are in the main chinchilla cage alone cause daddy will stress moma out to much for right now.

Here are some pics. : (these pics are from when "he" is only hours old and there is a story behind his name if u like ill tell )

That baby is only three hours old? I had no idea chinchillas had such large babies! I just assumed they gave birth to big litters of tiny little rascals like most other rodents.

no they have the longest pregnency of any rodent, 111 days. A large litter for a chinchilla is 3 (thats like twins to humans), An average litter is 1-2. They (like guinea pigs) can actually see, hear, and eat solid food all in the first day of there life.

I think ill tell u how he got his name now

The little guy was actually born Friday morning. We had about 4 inches of white coroplastsideing to keep stuff in. When he was born we uped it to 10 inches (the gaps between the wires are plenty large enough for him to slip through). But we did it in 2 different layers the shorter one on the inside......... He used this out as a stepping stool and actually got out of his cage (this cage is a 2 cage system in which the chinchilla cage is atleast 4 ft off of the ground wich is a nasty fall for something this big). I found him walking towards me (less then 3 ft away) whinning. So because the lil devil is an escape artist in his first 6-7 hours of life we named him houdini. No the cage has a vey fine chicken wire that covers every space he could get out of. He still climbs 6-8 inches above his cage bottom trying to escape but all he does is have to climb back down. 8)

Ill have to post updated pics of all my chinchilla's soon.

Your guinea pigs are really cute! I had guinea pigs as a kid. Is there any way to get them to shut up at night? Mine would squeal all night long.
