Enjoying the Chinchilla Spa

(CBS)- Chinchillas are hands down the softest animals I have ever felt in my entire life. So naturally I have a special place in my heart for any videos capturing the plush animal.

In the wild, Chinchillas are known for their rigorous dust baths, a practice that helps them keep their coats healthy and clean. But these baths not only maintain their silky smooth fur by absorbing oil and dirt from their fur, but it is also thought to be fun and even relaxing for the animals. They get really into their dust baths, tossing and flipping around, enjoying the simple pleasures of the Chinchilla Spa.
