Pet of the Week: “…We get to spend our workday watching Ember sleep in all sorts of ridiculous positions.”

“Ember is a 2-month-old “Mosaic” Chinchilla. Chinchillas are crepuscular, most active during twilight hours, so we get to spend our workday watching Ember sleep in all sorts of ridiculous positions, but our favorite is when he cuddles with his best friend “Purple-Chin”. Chinchillas are social animals so once he’s old enough we’ll be bonding Ember to our older male chinchilla Ash. Chinchillas are the softest mammal on earth and can also jump up to 6 feet! When they get excited chinchillas will bounce all around their habitat and do parkour off of any walls or ledges available!” — Jonathan Carter, downtown Silver Spring
