Long-Tailed Chinchilla

Dimensioned collection of scaled drawings of Long-Tailed Chinchilla in various poses

The Long-Tailed Chinchilla, scientifically known as Chinchilla lanigera, is one of two kinds of chinchilla native to the Andes of Northern Chile. Living in burrows in high elevations, the Long-Tailed Chinchilla has thick fur or hairs for warmth. Its physical characteristics includes large back eyes, a bushy tail, silky silvery hair, and long hind legs, like that of a rabbit.

Due to hunters seeking after its extremely soft hair, the lLong-Tailed Chinchilla is an endangered species. The lifespan of a chinchilla in the wild is generally 10 years, but that number is doubled if in human captivity.

Rodents are classified by a single pair of continuously growing incisors in both their upper and lower jaws; the length of their incisors are maintained by gnawing, which is how they eat. The diet of Rodents usually consists of seeds and plants, but some species do have more varied diets.
