Okay well this next tutorial is going to be on a very interesting pet that I am thinking about adopting next year. These animals are really quite intriguing and deserve to be read about because there are so many eye popping facts about these little guys. Today I will be showing you how to draw a chinchilla. Now for those of you that have no idea on what a chinchilla is, let me explain. These incredibly fluffy animals resemble a mouse (at least to me). They have one of the finest, softest furs in the world. The reason being is because they grow about fifty hairs that sprout from each hair follicle making their fur extremely thick as well. The fur on a chinchilla makes it impossible for fleas to dwell inside. If fleas even try to coexist they would wind up suffocating in the process. Now chinchillas are as big as rabbits and they have long fluffy tails. An animal usually baths in water right? Well not these critters, instead of using water to bathe, they use dust. Dust helps remove the excess oils in their fur which in turn help give it that extremely soft to touch texture. Many people now a days are adopting these guys as pets because they contain no pet dander at all, so as you know that becomes an important factor when it comes to owning an animal. If you have a pet you expect to play with it any time of the day right? Well not with a chinchilla. These mice like pets are strictly nocturnal meaning if you want to play with them you have to wait until they wake up a few hours after your family eats supper. Weird huh? I think that even though they look like rodents they would probably make a sweet pet (sweet meaning neat). So until I actually get one, I figured I would do a tutorial on one so I could at least remember what they look like. Unlike mice the chinchilla comes in many different colors and they also need a lot of good quality grass hay along with pellets made especially for chinchillas. They also snack on fruits as well. In this tutorial you will learn how to draw a chinchilla step by step. I will be back with more tutorials for you all so sit back and relax until I return.
