Sand baths are necessary for clarification of fur, removal of stress and maintenance of health of animals. Chinchillas never bathe in water. Unlike other rodents their skin has no sebaceous glands, therefore the fur quickly becomes wet. Chinchillas not only "get wet" through, but also without assistance cannot get out of water. Trays with sand should be put once a day for 15-20 minutes. Important correctly to feed chinchillas. For this purpose it is better to use industrial production forages (it is possible to use mixed fodder for rabbits).
