What to do for a chinchilla who has lost her mate?

by chloe

Unfortunately i have lost my male chinchilla to illness, what is the best thing to do with his mate?? do i find her another male chin or a female friend?


Most chinchillas get lonely, and losing a mate can be especially traumatic. Deciding on a male or female replacement really comes down to whether you would like to breed or not. The success of the pairing depends more on the personality of the chinchilla than the gender.
