    We have two chinchillas and yes they do look quite funny having a dust bath except we have something like this and i swear they spin like crazy and it sounds funny when they sneeze
    dustbath - chinchilla dust bath time!

    Why do they have a dust bath if I may ask?

    The dust gets into their fur and absorbs oil and dirt. They don't really bathe in water because the fur is VERY slow to dry if they get wet the water is retained and stays close to the skin which can cause fungus and fur rot

    its because they're originally from the desert so they are not used to being in or near water

    Let's recap what I am at this point:

    I am a physics defying ancient god inhabiting a robotic pinata with plans to conquer the planet. Makes sense to me.

    Oh, let's not forget that I can poly-morph into a green crayon or a potato at any time. And sometimes a carrot.
