This morning it is 33 degrees out. And I am thinking of chinchillas.
Remember Ajax the chinchilla, mentioned in yesterday's post on alternative petstyles? I am always tickled by the way they look - like a portly cockney bunny rabbit with ears squashed by a bowler hat. " 'Ello guvnor."
But I've never known one or been around one. That's why I am delighted to have found a site titled The Sounds Made by the Chinchillas. (Sounds like The Flight of the Conchords.) This is a German-to English site filled with pictures and cute tales, and yes, lots and lots of QuickTime files of chinchilla noises. I could listen to a sleepy and content baby chin for hours, I think.
