An entertained chinchilla is a happy chinchilla. So you’ll want to provide as many toys and accessories as you can while being reasonable with the costs. Over the years we’ve tried several products with a few of them emerging as favorites.
Hide ‘n Sleep Chinchilla Hammock
We were familiar with ferrets enjoying hammocks, however, we had not heard if the same applied to chinchillas. One day we came across a site with hammocks made specifically for chinchillas and we decided to give one a try.
We picked out the size (there are 2 sizes) and color (there are multiple options) and ordered online. Soon enough we received the order and hung it up in the cage. So far we have evidence (for those of you with chinchillas you’ll know what we mean by evidence) that our chinchillas have lounged in the hammock, however we have yet to catch them actually sitting in it (the image below is not our chinchilla). They continue to prefer to sleep in their wooden house.
Super Pet Leap-n-Ledge
Sometimes it’s the simplest idea that turns out to be the best idea. That is the case with the Leap-n-Ledge which is really nothing more than a block of wood with a screw stuck in one side to allow it to be attached to the side of a cage. This is a great way to add ledges to a cage. We often see our chinchillas perched on the Leap-n-Ledge.
