Chinchilla Skull - The Chinchilla, native to South America, has been domesticated and farmed for its fur for hundreds of years. During the mid 1900's, chinchilla fur coats sold for as much as fifty thousand dollars each. Due to over-harvesting for their fur, wild chinchilla populations have drastically declined and are now protected. Domestic chinchillas are commonly kept as household pets.
