    Sorry, haven't read posts through but... do you realise how long chinchillas live? I can't exactly remember - but it's a long time. What about if you go to uni, what are you going to do with them then?

    Chinchillas bite too. And it hurts more than a hamster bite. They're evil things, don't let them into your house.
    Hmm no, We have 2 Chillis and they're teeth aren't sharp at all, they just nibble abit. Hamsters bites on the other hand......:mad:


    Chinchillas can live for about 20 years so it's a big commitment. They are also expensive (around £80 each). I guess you'd have to try and convince her you're serious about looking after them. My sister had to beg my dad for 2+ years before he gave in haha. Just show her how sweet they are :p:
