    Chinchillas are very cute and Furby certainly is! I've never seen a beige Chinchilla before - and is that Totoro in there, too?:wink:

    Yes they are cute but the smell from keeping them in an air conditioned flat can be overwhelming haha, like all pets I suppose. Totoro was there to test drive the cage first.

    Hey nice, I like his little feet in No.1. They are so cute.
    I've never seen or heard of these animals before, they look like a highly modified version of a guinea pig:smile:

    The depth of field on and the bokeh on that lens is amazing. Thanks for showing them.

    Hi Icon,

    Yeah and those were like just shapshots in auto mode. I don't think my chinchilla would pose for too long for me to focus manually.

    Chinchillas are from the Andes in South America. I won't be surprised you haven't seen them before because they are illegal to own or import in OZ. Maybe move to NZ you can get them there haha.

    Yeah I don't think I'm fast enough to focus anything manually!

    Those kinds of animals they wont let us have in Australia for some reason. Maybe they would breed to fast and create havoc. I know in Queensland here they wont let you keep rabbits and if you're caught it can be a 30k fine. But the funny thing is a friend down the road has a pet Rat! Can you believe that? (She did come from Sydney so she's very 'citified' as we'd say.) Where we are in the country tho, mice and rats are a plague.

    Haha, it'd be too cold for me in NZ. I like my 30-40 degree days- albeit with low humidity tho. That high humidity stuff kills.

    I think they are not allowed into OZ because they probably won't survive the high weather. These creatures need a temperature of 15-25 degrees and nothing above 80% humidity. Once it hits 30 degrees their little brains fry.

    I miss the dry weather. HK is too wet.
