In Real Life
Long-tailed chinchillas are social animals. They live in colonies of more than 100 individuals. They are primarily nocturnal creatures but also can be seen on sunny days sitting in front of their hole, climbing and jumping on the rocks. Female in this species are dominant. They are very aggressive towards males and other females during the breeding time. When threatened Long-tailed chinchillas growl, chatter their teeth, and urinate.
Long-tailed chinchillas are herbivores (folivores). Their diet includes different types of vegetation, but mostly grass and seeds. They also eat insects and bird eggs. Domesticated chinchillas eat wheat, hay, alfalfa, corn, oats, and food pellets.
Long-tailed chinchillas have been threatened for years by poaching, pet trade, hunting, mining, and firewood extraction.
Her redesign's release correlates with 2020 being the year of the rat, as she is a rodent.
