Like Diego Maradona, the famous footballer, chinchillas are from South America. They have bushy tails and round little bodies, and they look like a cross between a squirrel, a rat and a guinea pig. Chinchillas like jumping and they can leap up to six feet in the air. That’s pretty high for such a little fella. That would be like you jumping onto the roof of your mum and dad’s house. Without a run up. Not bad, eh? If there was ever a Rodent Olympic Games I’d put my money on a chinchilla winning the high jump.
