Things to remember
Lifting & handling
Handle your chinchilla gently -- scoop her up in both hands and hold her snuggly against your body with cupped hands so she'll feel safe and secure.
Chinchillas overheat easily, and should be kept in a cool environment.
They like to run and play at night and sleep during the day, so be prepared for them to be active after dark. However, they can adapt to being daytime active.
Choose a fortified chinchilla diet.
Your chinchilla needs a well-ventilated home with a solid floor, large enough for a food dish and water bottle or bowl, and a hiding house. There should be plenty of room for all cage accessories, and for her to move around freely.
