    Chinchillas are crepuscular rodents that are native to the Andes Mountains in South America. They are slightly larger than the size of ground squirrels. Along with its relative, the viscacha, the two nocturnal mammals make up the family Chinchillidae. Viscachas are closely related to chinchillas, and they look quite similar to rabbits.

    The various breeds of chinchilla make up the chinchillidae family; they have their own classification. Chinchillas are crepuscular rodents, this means that like many other mammal species they are most active at twilight (dusk and dawn). Crepuscular is not to be confused with nocturnal; which indicates primary activity throughout the nighttime.
