Not many people have heard about this furry little rodent -- the chinchilla, the world's softest animal. These little rodents live in South America with their colonies called herds. Chinchillas are so tiny, they're smaller than ground squirrels. These animals are popular pets, but, you should only purchase one if you are an experienced pet owner. Chinchillas are herbivores, which means they only eat plants. If you travel to South America you can find chinchillas in Bolivia, Peru, Argentina, and Chile. Personally chinchillas are my favorite animal, do some research on them! You might just find a new favorite animal.
