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

Chinchillas are originally from South America and live there in rocky mountain slopes near the coast. Their survival is strongly threatened and nowadays 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 especially prefer dry and sparsely vegetated slopes with a loose vegetation consisting of cacti, bromelia and small shrubs. They make their holes in rock crevices.

Chinchillas feed on plant food and are able to process them optimally.

Chinchillas have very 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 food is necessary for the tooth wear.

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

Fine dietary fibers end up in the voluminous cecum, which are 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 bowel cocks are taken back by chinchillas.

Ratio Crude fiber and starch

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

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

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

  • Too little raw fiber leads to intestinal inertia, change of the intestinal flora and impaired functioning of the cecum.
  • Too much starch leads to food breaks, changes in intestinal flora, swelling, diarrhea, fermentation, adiposity.

Therefore, veterinarians recommend at least a crude fiber-starch ratio of 3: 1.

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