From his tiny hands which clasp his food as he nibbles, to his dumbo shaped ears, to his fluffy, fluffy coat, Caldecott is simply adorable. While both chinchillas* are shy, Caldecott is slightly more outgoing than his companion, Newbery. He can also 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.
