* Did you know it takes over 200 Chinchillas to make a real Chinchilla Fur coat, selling at £3,000 - £10,000, around 80,000 chinchillas are still being farmed for fur across Europe - and many more globally.
Chinchillas originate from the Andes in South America, where their thick fur allows them to survive cold mountain temperatures. In the wild, chinchillas are now critically endangered as a result of humans hunting and trapping them for their fur.
Chinchillas are quiet and shy, with a natural lifespan of 10 to 20 years.
Chinchillas are highly social, and in the wild, they live in colonies with more than 100 other individuals. They're also notable for being kind to one another. For example, if a chinchilla mum has problems producing milk to feed her babies, another female will often step in to assist, while male chinchillas will often help out with babysitting.
