Galathea (Thea). From our first litter she's turning 12 on march 14th. Not much of a cuddly animal, but we still love her
Madonna. True primadonna as a kit. Very sweet and friendly, and a bit of a rat face to her - haha.
Kuk, my pretty standard male. I simply love this light colouration but they are near impossible to get hold of anymore, and it's impossible to get them with out any recessive genes in them :/ When I say they are near impossible to get, this is not entirely true. It's quite easy to get hold of the light animals if you go to petshops. My experience with petshops is not good though and I really do not want to help them think chinchillas is a good way of making money. He's quite the character acting skittish one day, trying to breake out of the cage the next, not caring if we are standing right there or not ^_^
Madonna and her daughter Elvira. Elvira is such a weird animal. Not really into being handled, trying to bite one moment but totally cool if you give her a treat. She has always been like this, like from she was a week or two old. Same with Thea actually. Couldn't handle her from the start. I really like how they have such different personalities. I don't mind if they do not want to cuddle, that is part of the charm with chinchillas imo.
Blue. He looks so small. Colour is violet, thats why he looks more shiny than the rest. He is grown and about 4 years old if I'm not wrong. The small ears does make them look cute, but personally I'm not that much into these small ears. I got him because of his size. Didn't grow as previous owner expected = perfect size for me.
Speedy. Her mum is Madonna. Sweet girl, not that easy to handle but when she's out she's okay. Got her name for a reason. Funny how I tend to keep the animals that do not want anybody to handle them. They have such character.
Last one. Pandekage (pancake - sisters name was vaffel = waffel). Son of Blue and Speedy. Pandekage fits his name both in colour and size. Boy likes to eat and to be honest he's getting fat xD
He's one of those kits I ended up keeping, for some reason. I did actually have people interested in him, it just didn't work out and now he is going to stay here. I'm thinking he and his cagemate and dad Blue are the perfect animals for conventions and what not. Both friendly, not the most cuddly animals but love to sit on shoulders and eat treats.
