Chinchilla Cages

Chinchillas are super cute small rodents that people keep as pets, and one of their most striking qualities is their small size as they can usually fit in the palm of your hand and weight only about a pound or two. Chinchillas have incredibly soft fur, and they are native to the Andes Mountains in South America. If you’re not in the mood to look up what these little guys look like, many people say they resembles a cross between a rat and a squirrel. Chinchillas are rodents, but contrary to what many people mistakenly believe, they are not dirty animals at all. In fact, they are very clean, odorless, and gentle animals. Chinchillas make wonderful pets, however they’re more suited for households without young children because they require a lot of maintenance and attention. You can check out amazing chinchilla cages of all different shapes and sizes here on the Zen Pet Supplies’ online store.

Chinchillas have a lifespan of 10-20 years, so please make sure you can commit to taking care of a pet that long or can make arrangements for family members to take over in the event you’re not able to if you choose this animal for your next pet. We carry both single and multi-level cages to suit all your needs, and whether you have one chinchilla or several, you’ll be able to find appropriate housing for all of them right here in one place. Choosing the right cage for your pet chinchilla is a big decision and a big investment, so you want to do some research first to learn as much as you can about owning a chinchilla. You can also speak to an experienced chinchilla owner to get some great advice about how to set up a chinchilla habitat.

Chinchilla experts provide some very specific information about cage recommendations. Chinchillas need a cage measuring at least 24″ x 14″ x 16″, and for a chinchilla family, you should choose a bigger cage size of approximately 30″ x 18″ x 24″. The most comfortable design features dimensions of 36″ x 30″ x 60″. Because chinchillas are active climbers, if you can comfortably house and afford multiple levels, please consider getting at least two levels, two ramps and two balconies so your pets have plenty of moving about room. The wire mesh should have spaces up to 1 inch (2.5 cm) especially if one of the pets is pregnant because baby chinchilla could easily squeeze even through small cage bar spacing. As you browse through the chinchilla cages here at Zen, be sure to check out the dimensions and then decide which one will work best for your pet and your budget.
