Chinchillas are widely kept as pets but last year I was shocked to find that they were listed as Critically Endangered in their native habitat, the mountain region of Chile, due to extensive hunting for their fur. Their population had shrunk by 90 % in the last 15 years. Since then, the situation has mildly improved and they have been reclassified as Endangered as there has been a recovery in some areas. I am therefore dressed as a chichilla of the brown velvet colour variety.
