Chinchilla vs Hedgehog vs Bunny vs Guinea Pig
We are considering adding a new member to the family, and these fluffballs are our options.

Opinions on which we should choose?

RE: Chinchilla vs Hedgehog vs Bunny vs Guinea Pig
things to consider-

1. cost of food
2. size of cage- bigger =more $
3. size of poop = bigger = more annoying
4. are they nocturnal?
5. will others be taking care of it from time to time? when you go out if town, how big of a pain will it be for them?

RE: Chinchilla vs Hedgehog vs Bunny vs Guinea Pig

the beauty of goldfish is you can find another that looks just like it when you need to. Thumbsup

RE: Chinchilla vs Hedgehog vs Bunny vs Guinea Pig
Yeah, I've been reading all about them. The cheapest, best life span, and easiest to keep is probably the hedgehog or g-pig. Bunnies don't live long enough but they are cheap and easy, and chinchillas are easy to keep, mid-range in price, live close to 20 years, and are nocturnal.

Chinchillas may be off the list as they seem like not a good fit for us.

RE: Chinchilla vs Hedgehog vs Bunny vs Guinea Pig
My aunt has chinchilla's. They're sooo soft. They're very deceptive too because while you think they're the size of a g-pig they're actually the size of a small beetle, it's actually 99.5% fur and 0.5% chinchilla. True story.

Hedgehogs I had no idea you could actually keep as pets. In the wild they are diseased ridden filthy creatures that attract flies like you wouldn't believe. So there's that.

G-pigs are boring.

If you have a large garage that is attached to your house you could keep a decent sized cage in there. That way you can close the doors and let them loose and they wont bother you at night.

IMO, get a rat.

I was down for a rat too, but QC nixed that.
