Sand baths for chinchilla Monroe

 

11.10.2017

Get acquainted - this is chinchilla Monroe from the contact animalsĺ group of Kyiv Zoo.

He gives smiles to kids from OKHMATDYT and works at the zoo-lesson "Fluffy critters. Meeting with rodentsö.  Also his soft fur could be touched and felt by the participants of the typhlozoological project "Zoo to the touch"

In order to feel good and look good, Monroe needs to take regular baths.

However, not with water, but with sand!

Such "bathing" absorbs moisture, dirt and fat and smoothes hairs on the coat.
