Chinchillas are small, folivorous / herbivorous (herbivorous) mammals and belong to the order of the rodents. They are predominantly active at dusk and at night, very social and live in nature in families as one pair and their female offspring. Even when kept as pets, they should not be allowed to sit alone. They feel good as a couple or in a group (a castrated male and one or more females). A chinchilla can live up to 20 years old, reaching a body length of approx. 26 cm and a weight of 400 to 600 g.

Chinchillas are native to South America and live there in rocky mountain slopes near the coast. Their survival is highly endangered and today only 2 small residual populations live in the north of Central Chile.

The vegetation in their country of origin varies and often has a desert-like character. They prefer dry and sparsely vegetated slopes with a loose vegetation consisting of cacti, bromeliad and small shrubs. They make their burrows in crevices.

Chinchillas feed on vegetable food and are able to process it optimally.

Chinchillas have their own nutritional needs.

The digestive system is important for a healthy and vital life.

There are two incisors in the upper and lower jaw, which, like the molars, continue to grow for life. A rough fiber structure in the food is necessary for tooth wear.

Stomach
The stomach is only moderately muscular and therefore cannot independently transport the knitted food to the next part of the intestine. The following nutritional portions take over that task.

Cecum
Fine dietary fiber enters the bulky cecum, which is converted into proteins, vitamin B complex and vitamin K by special bacteria. That is why the cecum is also called the yeast chamber. The formed caecum droppings are taken up by chinchillas.

Ratio Crude fiber and starch

Crude fiber: Crude fiber is very important for health. They support digestion, cecum and with their rough fiber structure tooth wear.

Starch: Starch is mainly an energy supplier and must be limited in the feed.

A shift in the crude fiber-starch ratio can lead to long-term health damage:

  • Too little raw fiber leads to intestinal inertia, alteration of the intestinal flora and disrupted functioning of the cecum.
  • Too much starch leads to break times, changes in the intestinal flora, swelling, diarrhea, fermentation, adiposity.

Therefore, vets recommend a minimum 3: 1 raw fiber-starch ratio.

How do I actually know how much starch my food contains?
The composition is very useful here: whole grains (with starchy meal), field beans, potatoes or peas are an indication that a higher starch content should be taken into account.
