Baby chinchillas take their first sand bath
Watch out: These two junior chinchillas are having their very first sand bath today. In order to try out the sandy pleasure first, they are given a special small baby bath.
Well, the little rodents like that! Courageous and in a good mood, the two of them romp through and around their mini sand bath. In order to care for their fur as properly as a chinchilla should, they gently roll around in the sand, thereby fulfilling a natural need of rodents.
Only when a slightly older chinchilla comes by and also wants to share in the bathing fun does a small problem arise: the mini-bathroom is much too small for him. Has he forgotten that there is also a larger sand bath available for him? In the second video, which is also very cute, you can see what the sandy bathing fun looks like for adult chinchillas.
