A lovely young man phoned me recently asking if I'd like to come and see his new pet, a Chinchilla, named Ralph. Well, of course, I was quite excited about this as I'd never seen one before only in pictures. Yesterday morning we went to have a look. What a beautiful creature! I didn't realize they were so big and the fur is absolutely wonderful. Huge ears and a squirrel like tail. I took some pictures but unfortunately I didn't get one good one. He was moving so fast and the light coming through the windows was picked up by the camera. Anyway, I'm putting them on here.
The first picture, and you can hardly make him out, he's in his bath. There's a special dust that goes in it and he gets quite excited when he sees it. So funny to see him jump right in and roll around. In the other pictures he was out running around having a great time.
