We’ve had Chaco, a young viscacha, for about a year now and she’s still not as comfortable around people as we’d like. We go in her enclosure every day to clean and feed her, but she tends to stand still in a corner while we go about our business. Kim, one of our staff members, has been bringing Chaco home for sleepovers every once in a while and the rest of our staff and interns have been making an effort to spend more time feeding her treats and coaxing her out of her comfort zone. She’s pretty shy but she is such a sweet girl!
She really loves being pet!
Just look at that cute little face!
