Chinchillas! Learn About Chinchillas and Enjoy Colorful Pictures - Look and Learn!

Chinchillas! Learn About Chinchillas and Enjoy Colorful Pictures - Look and Learn! (50+ Photos of Chinchillas) - Becky Wolff

3 Stars, borrow it.



No cute anecdote for these guys, but they are pretty darned cute.  Pictures aren’t horrible but not up to National Geographic comparison either but the book is pretty full of content. OK a little bit of unpleasantness that definitely downgrades this one: “It takes the fur from 250 chinchillas to make a coat.” Seriously??? You have to talk about this crap?? Nothing like encouraging animal abuse. Downgraded to 3 stars.
