Quick as a wink, a chinchilla can race from the top of a three-story cage to the bottom — they are that fast! Although not known as a pet that will snuggle with its owner, chinchillas charm people in other ways. Those big ears and fluffy tail are just a start. Their whiskers and oh-so-soft fur also delight people. It all adds up to a furry little friend that's too cute not to immortalize with pictures, and chinchillas are as photogenic as other pets, if you can catch them sitting still.
Scroll through the chinchilla photos below to get a glimpse into the world of chinchillas. And we hope you'll enjoy the little sayings we've paired with the images. Many thanks to the people who sent us their chinchilla pictures to make this gallery possible.
