Chinchilla vs. Bunny?
What's a Chinchilla like? I know, I know, I haven't done my reserch. Well, oh well! I mean, really.
My Mom said I can either get a bunny or a chinchilla. I know they aren't like toys, and they both take work. I'm 11 and I was wondering which is better.
I'm really mature, I go to a top private school, so if you tell me something complecated about them, I'll probably get it. Which is better and why?

I had my two bunnies since I was 11 and I also own a chinchilla.
Anyways you should do some research put I'll give you some info:
need dust baths every week
need to be tamed
need air conditionings in the summer
chew on everything
not recommended for children under 10
require time out of their cage alot
need chew sticks to grind down teeth
active in the morning and also after school
litter box trainable
able to learn a lot of tricks
don't bite unless threatened
live up to 12 years
bites may be painful
need a giant cage
need a lot of play time.. maybe from after school until bed time
getting veggies is expensive
need to get neutered& spayed or else very aggressive and humpy
bunny proof your house before it gets chewed down
Both animals require a lot of care but at the end you get a loving sweet creature... BUNNY!

um.... quiet? chinchillas? no they are not quiet, but unless you can devote the next 15 to 25 years to the chin just get a rabbit they cost only like 20 bucks where as a chinchilla costs 100 dollars, if you can find one that inexspensive, not including the cage n supplies.Source(s): owns 2 chins n_n

I would go with a Rabbit because they are easy to Care for. Chinchillas need a lot of attention and extra Care. Anyway sorry If i wasn't much help but please please do more Research before you get any animal.
