unique critters on the planet, which ones are the warmest, cutest, furriest,
cuddliest, most entertaining and affectionate pets of all? Well, I suppose if you ask ten different pet
owners, you’ll likely get ten different answers. For me, it’s hard to beat the
incredible little critter from high up in the Andes Mountains of South America,
the chinchilla. And, that’s especially true of the adorable chinchilla baby.
Chinchillas as pets were imported, or more likely smuggled into North America
nearly a century ago, these adorable dynamos have evolved into one of the
world’s most cherished pets.
The name chinchilla
means “little chincha”, a name associated with the Chincha people of
Peru, a group who relied heavily upon the once abundant rodent populations for
both food and fur. Unfortunately, the arrival of Spanish conquistadors in the
16th century ushered in the eventual demise of the larger king chinchilla and
the subsequent endangerment of the remainder of the entire wild species, as the
chinchilla fur trade offered an irresistible opportunity for wealth.
Thankfully, that group
of a dozen or so chinnies, who were discreetly transported to California at the
turn of the century, are given credit, by some experts, as having propagated
the entire population of North American chinchillas. Sadly, the numbers left
behind in South America have struggled for survival and while they may be

necessary growth to offer any substantial hope for the … Read More >>>

Crested ducks, like the one particular on the left in this photo or the one on the Pekin in the photo above, are a outcome of a gene that causes the skull to stay partially open for the life of the duck. The crest really types on a fatty piece of tissue more than a hole or soft spot in the skull. Usually, if only one parent carries the gene and the other doesn’t, it is not a problem, and most ducklings will hatch healthful.
