Where do chinchillas live in the wild?



  1. 0 Votes

    Chinchillas are native to the Andes mountains in South America where they live in burrows or rock crevices. They were named after the people of the region, who used to wear their fur regularly. Due to overhunting, the chinchilla population declined greatly in the last century.

    I own a Chinchilla. As far as I know, I’ve heard they live in South America.  THe Chinchhilla popultion went down A LOT due to the love of Chinchilla fur.
