9. Give your chinchilla a chance to socialize with other chinchillas
Out in the wild, chinchillas are social creatures that live in large groups. It would be unnatural to keep a chinchilla by itself. It can be difficult to keep unrelated chinchillas in the same cage, though. If they haven’t been together for a long time, you can’t expect them to tolerate one another. If you plan to raise multiple chinchillas together, you should make sure that you get them at a young age.
