Chinchillas are probably the only ones from the detachment of rodents that have gained the status of intelligent animals. The range of emotions and sound signals in animals is so wide that it can be asserted with confidence that they speak with a person, but only in their own language.
Experienced breeders claim that every scream or squeak can be identified and find out what the pet wants.
Normal animal communication sounds: what does each mean?
The chinchilla family can make a cacophony of sounds, communicating with each other and among these sounds you can distinguish a clear desire to play, get angry or demand a treat.
In fact, chinchillas can be called talkers. By the nature and variety of intonations in communication between animals, you can find out how personal relationships are built. Changing the tone and volume of the voice, rodents form their own, special language.
This is not to say that the sound made by one chinchilla means the same thing that another individual wants to convey, each squeak is unique. However, the signals given by the animals are classified and, carefully listening to the intonation, you can understand what the pet wants.
A low squeak is made by hungry rodents, urging the owner to fill the feeder. The same sound, similar to the peeping of a rubber toy, is used to search for a lost friend and translates as an exchange of callsigns, as well as when exploring new territories.
Chinchillas living in families are more disposed to communicate with each other. A loner squeaks much less.
How does he scream when in danger?
Despite the fact that in the wild, chinchillas live high in the rocks, there are enough amateurs among predators who would willingly eat a rodent. Snakes, foxes and kites are the natural enemies of animals.
Inhabited by colonies in several families, animals lead an active nightlife, preferring to get food in the dark.
Stronger males diverge along the perimeter of the plot with food and play the role of signalmen in the event of the appearance of a predator. But night outings do not save from attacks, and in danger chinchilla tries to defend itself.
Having risen on its paws, the animal is stretched with the whole body, furiously claws its jaw and at the same time emits a formidable growl. The final chord is a stream of urine launched into the enemy. If such a powerful argument does not deter the predator, then teeth are used.
Listen, does your chinchilla so squeak?
Pets have not forgotten instincts, and at the time of possible danger they apply the skills of their ancestors.
A loud sound, intermittent and like a dog barking, indicates a strong feeling of anxiety or fear.
A series of short barks is given by a pet who is not familiar with the new situation. A rodent can be frightened and react on a variety of occasions:
- Sudden sounds from the street.
- The noise of household appliances.
- During repair work.
- At fireworks launches.
Inexplicable rustles and sharp pops terrify the animal, forcing shelter in a shelter. As soon as he settles in a new home, then barking will stop.
In large families, it is not uncommon to clarify relationships. The youngest pets muzzle each other with their paws for the right to be the first in the queue for breast milk. The males, in the battle for the attention of the females, grit their teeth, challenging an opponent to a duel. Chinchilla can say indignation with a squeak, which did not get a place near the feeder. In a word, each desire or action is reinforced by animals with a portion of emotional exclamations.
Do not neglect the sounds that the rodent emits. A loud scream may be a notice of injury or an onset of illness.
If a pet makes a squeak only at night
Since chinchillas prefer to sleep during the day, the main phase of activity occurs in the dark. Squeak at night means that the pet is awake and bored.
Lone rodent complains about lack of attention from the owner or desire to get a treat.
Couples can noisily share an appetizing slice or fight for a comfortable sleeping place, and kids often argue about owning a toy. Sometimes a call squeak indicates an invitation to games.
Chinchilla is a fairly peaceful animal and only conflict or stressful situations can make them express their emotions with a cry. By listening and recognizing here or another intonation, you can ease the life of the rodent and make it a happy, obedient pet.
