Mr. Chapman on the History and My Neighbor Totoro Thank Mr. Chapman, his efforts to make such a cute little elf with us. ? Totoro&#39;s ancestors had lived in the Andes of South America&#39;s fissure in elevation of 500-1200 meters. Despite the cold and arid climate, great temperature difference between day and night, but chinchillas are still living a life of peace and happiness of the herd. In the action sequence of the home is the lack of food, chinchillas, who can only rely on the bark, roots, cactus and other live, which makes action sequence with strong vitality and resistance. Also due to natural conditions such harshness, making action sequence in the evolution of naturally reduced the number of births and prolonged pregnancy cycle: My Neighbor Totoro only 1-3 per litter, and the average gestation period of as much as 111 days. However, another advantage is Totoro brings the life of rodents is also the longest average life span 12-20 years, captive environment is still more than 35 years of health records. So chinchillas as pets to accompany owners spend a long years. Totoro has the world&#39;s most dense fur, every pore even with 40-60 root hair, the provenance of the best the United States, more to the number of each pore 80 (cats and dogs every pore is only 1-3 a hair) in chinchillas home, chinchillas fur is right, a symbol of good fortune and wealth, is the chief ornaments of indigenous people. The sixteenth century, Spanish colonists set foot on the home of My Neighbor Totoro, they found this little creature could be so soft fur, temperament was so docile, for centuries the number of fox hunting and the proliferation of so great action sequence is almost extinct. To the early 19th century they had been arrested Totoro extinction immediate concern, a mining engineer from the United States MFChapman high reward, spent four years time to collect 11 (8 public and 3 female) My Neighbor Totoro back to the United States breeding success, you have a chance today, I keep this cute little animals, the world&#39;s most chinchillas are the descendants of these 11 action sequence. ? Wild chinchillas have been a long time now been found, and is likely to have become extinct, they are CITES I-class protected animals. Chinchilla raising the current volume of the largest in the United States, followed by Canada, Argentina, Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark, Chile, Uruguay and other countries. Hong Kong, Japan and other places due to climate and geographical reasons for not forming Totoro farms do not produce action sequence, but the sale of private training, quality, quantity is not stable. Yankee numerous breeding farm for many years a large number of chinchillas, currently the largest known breeding farm as much as about 8000. Canada since 1937 from the United States chinchillas, currently the main producing areas in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and other provinces Sasikaqie moderate. Because the United States was the first successful artificial breeding of the country will be My Neighbor Totoro, so the propagation of the United States can be regarded as the most experienced experts. The first chinchilla breeders association ECBC (Empress Chinchilla Breeders&#39;Cooperative) was established in 1938. The organization is committed to pure breeding and the fur industry were designed in 1950, the special color Totoro breeding more and more people, there are another association was born, that is, MCBA (Mutation Chinchilla Breeders&#39;Association) MCBA every year provinces to hold a variety of games, so that breeders can observe each other to exchange experience. The United States and Canada, farmers were very respected by the two associations set standards and competition. In biology, they are sui generis chinchilladale varieties. Chinchilladale is divided into the following categories: 1) Short-tailed Chinchilla (chinchillaboliviana) - wild, almost extinct. 2) The Emperor My Neighbor Totoro (Kingchinchilla) - a kind of a 40cm-long giant chinchilla, also known as realchinchilla, extinct hundreds of years ago. Remaining specimens are placed in one of Germany&#39;s Senckenberg Museum. 3) Long-tailed Chinchilla (ChinchillaLanigera) - used for fur and pet; bred out of most of Chinchilla earners belong to this category, the wild has almost disappeared. All originated in South America belong to a protected wild chinchilla animal, and can legally import foreign workers by breeding. ?
