How can you sleep like that?!
It's amazing just how many different positions the chins can strike during their nap times. Raisin here has shown us some of the wackiest poses; from folding herself completely over inside her tube, to reaching for an invisible treat she dropped on the cage floor in her sleep.
Raisin is not the only one with these interesting sleeping habits. For example, Kismet likes to sleep up next to the side of the cage, holding a bar in between her teeth! Many times we nearly have a heart attack, because a chinchilla will appear dead, rather than simply sleeping (which is especially true when they sleep with their eyes open).
As a side note, we are having another open house today. See our Craigslist posting for more info:
