Had a couple chinchillas growing up and they are super soft. All the chinchilla costs I’ve seen are only on the outside which doesn’t make sense as you want to touch the softness

This being StyFo ...

That's so damn ugly.

How are they as pets?
He lives in my 10 year old's room, and she loves him. She will pull him out of his massive cage and she pulls him out so he can sit on her lap while she is in her hammock chair. She even made him a foam bed. Out of the cage he likes to run around. He doesn't lap sit like a dog or cat. They take baths in volcanic ash.

So more like a gerbil or a guinea pig, then?

My kid wants one, but she lacks the willpower to save up the money to buy it. I'm curious how much of a pain in the ass it will be to own if she ever gets her shit together.

Typically more skittish, way harder to catch, and way easier to injure than those pets.

My 10 year old does all the work. She cleans the cage once a week and it doesn't smell. She also has a gerbil that she takes care of. Naturally YMMV on kid actions. Here is the bespoke bed K4 made yesterday.
