Native to Andes Mountains, South America
The softest animal in the world calls JEAR home and that is the luxurious chinchilla! One of our favorite facts is their fur is so dense they cannot get fleas.
Think clouds! Along with being the softest in the world they are also pretty exotic and quirky. Jumping and impressing you with their hilarious antics. Not the snuggliest of the exotic rodents but they make up for it with their personality.
