Back to Meet the Animals

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.
