Chinchillas and their relative's viscachas are small, twilight rodents native to the Andes Mountains in South America. They belong to the family Chinchillidae.

Chinchillas must regularly bathe in dust or volcanic ash to remove oil and moisture that gathers in their thick fur. They have the highest fur density of any land animal with more than 20,000 hairs per square cm. Their fur is so dense...
