Chinchillas are native to the Andes Mountains in South America, and live in herds at high elevations. Historically, chinchillas occupied a large area that included Chile, Bolivia, Peru and Argentina, but now only exist in the wild in Chile. Chinchillas are excellent jumpers, have the densest fur of any land mammal, and can live up to 20 years! Green Chimneys is home to many exotic animals, and your generosity equates to safety and security for them all.
