How to get it
Looking for a happy habitat for your chinchilla? These nocturnal critters love to be cuddled and enjoy plenty of socialization with their pet parent outside of their cage. But a comfortable place of their own is vital for your furry friend’s wellbeing. They should be able to eat, sleep, and play by themselves or with other chinchillas, too.
As a pet parent, you have many options for your chinchilla’s cage. Chinchillas are usually highly active pets who love to climb, play with toys and jump around. When it comes to their cage, the bigger the better! It needs to be large enough to accommodate their level of activity. We also recommend a habitat with multiple levels built-in, or at least ramps and shelves to climb.
We recommend wire cages with a solid bottom for your chinchilla. The space between the wires shouldn’t exceed one inch. Wire helps ensure their habitat will be chew-proof and well ventilated. Place 1-2" of bedding in the bottom of their cage, and a hideaway space for them. Ensure there are no extreme temperature changes and they’re out of direct sunlight.
Your chinchilla will appreciate a clean living environment. As their pet parent, it’s up to you to help keep their habitat looking and smelling fresh.

Yes, chinchilla habitats ensure that your pet is comfortable and secure in their own space. But you can also let your chinchillas out of their cage in supervised environments in order to bond with them.
A 6 x 6 x 3 foot cage is ideal for one chinchilla.
Chinchillas require a layer of bedding, food and water bowls, beds and hideaways, and other habitat accessories. Read our chinchilla care sheet for more information on setting up the proper habitat.
