Chinchillas are small, folivorous / herbivorous (herbivorous) mammals and belong to the order of the rodents. They are mostly active at dusk and at night, very social and live in nature in family context as one couple and their female descendants. Even if they are kept as pets, they should not be left alone. As a couple or in a group (a castrated male and one or more females) they feel good. A chinchilla can reach the age of 20 and reaches a body length of around 26 cm and a weight of 400 to 600 g.

Chinchillas originally come from South America and live there on rocky mountain slopes near the coast. Their survival is highly threatened and nowadays there are only 2 small remaining populations in the north of Central Chile.

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

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 jaws, which, like the molars, continue to grow for life. A rough fiber structure in the feed is necessary for the tooth wear.

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

Fine dietary fibers end up in the voluminous appendix, which are converted into proteins, vitamin B complex and vitamin K by special bacteria. That is why the appendix is also called the fermentation chamber. The appendicitis keys formed are taken back by chinchillas.

Ratio Raw fiber and starch

Raw fiber: Raw fiber is very important for health. They support the digestion, the appendix and with their rough fiber structure the tooth wear.

Starch: Starch is primarily an energy supplier and must be present in the feed to a limited extent.

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

  • Too little crude fiber leads to intestinal inertia, changes in the intestinal flora and impaired functioning of the appendix.
  • Too much starch leads to eating breaks, changes in the intestinal flora, swellings, diarrhea, fermentation, adiposity.

That is why veterinarians recommend at least a crude fiber-starch ratio of 3: 1.

How do I know how much starch my feed contains?
In addition, the composition is very useful: whole grains (with starch containing flour), field beans, potatoes or peas are an indication that a higher starch content must be taken into account.
