It is obvious that animals don't really talk, but they know how to communicate with each other. There is something strange about the way same animals look at each other that they immediately got the state of mind of their fellow. Animals communicate to other mammals through noises; and the sounds they make may sometimes help to grab attention from their owner. Both cats and dogs have different ways to communicate with their owners; dogs bark if they sense a threat and cats meow if they need to be fed NOW. Through actions, pets were able to express their affection. It is simply the sounds that you should be wary of.
Chinchillas are not your typical
pet but it is ideal that you recognize what noises they make and what emotions
are attached to them. Noise such as grunting is the most common sound which
chinchilla are used to making. This might be the only "normal" sound they can
create on an ordinary day. Here are a few chinchilla noises, both usual and
Shrill: A shrill will be made if a chinchilla feel frightened or bullied.
They can either make a series of shrills or they can just throw in one big
burst. In the wild, chinchillas alert their fellow "chins" about an incoming
predator by making this noise. Chinchillas inside the cage may make this sound
if they find a different animal coming near to them; especially if the
approaching animal is a big threat to them. This sound can be likened to a hiss
that a cat makes when it is in a do-or-die situation. If you hear your
chinchillas shrilling, you don't have to wait another time to come for their
rescue – no matter what the reason is.
Chattering Teeth: This does not simply say that you need to get the teeth of
your little pet trimmed. When a chinchilla feels so annoyed and upset, they tend
to create this noise. Like for example, a chinchilla trying to steal his
fellow's food; their responses will create such noise. This is usually observed
if chinchillas are living in the same cage. Chinchillas have a sense of privacy,
and violation of their privacy can be the main reason of this noise.
Other chinchilla noises need not to be described. For instance, if a
chinchilla is in trouble or in pain, they have the tendency of making a series
of loud squeaks. Chinchillas will make a different grunt once it is picked up by
an outsider; signifying that he doesn't like it. Most owners find these noises
annoying; so if you hear your chinchillas making these noises, better leave them
alone for a moment.
