From her tiny hands which clasp her food as she nibbles, to her dumbo shaped ears, to her fluffy, fluffy coat, Amelia is simply Adorable.  While both chinchillas* are shy, Amelia is known to be more outgoing than her male counterpart, Mr. Skeeter.  She's also bigger boned--but don't let her fool you.  She can zip through the store (and your fingers) faster than any other Rumpus critter (maybe--we haven't held an official race yet).



*Chinchillas are South American rodents slightly larger and more robust than ground squirrels, native to the Andes mountains.
