Seriously cute and unbelievably soft, chinchillas look something like a bunny crossed with a mouse, with a squirrel-like tail thrown in just for fun.

Chinchillas are typically gray, white or black and grow to be about 12 inches long (not including their 3-6 inch tail). Chinchillas do best in pairs and can live for 15-20 years, sometimes even longer.
