Chinchilla babies are born fully furred.
Pregnant chinchillas require plenty of calcium in their diet so they have enough for their own needs and the baby chinchillas growing inside them.
Litters of 1-2 babies are most common and, as you can see from the x-ray of a pregnant chinchilla, larger litters would place a heavy demand on the mother chinchilla’s body.
