About Chinchilly Eggs

Despite their cold-looking appearance, Chinchilly eggs are rather warm due their scarves which constantly produce heat. The SARC is yet to discover how the scarves generate so much energy, and their best guess is that it comes from the abundance of nutrients in the egg's shell.

About the Chinchilly Creature

Chinchillies have a tuft of fur inside the shell of their ears that resemble ear muffs. It is assumed by the SARC that this little bit of fur prevents too much heat from escaping the Chinchilly's ears.

Chinchillies are mischievous creatures that love to pull pranks on Arkians, and particularly enjoy burrowing around the snow during the winter and popping out to surprise people.

Despite their love for a good joke, Chinchillies are very affectionate creatures that always enjoy cuddling and company. They are born with the scarves they wear, and never take them off, so if you tug on it or try to take it from your Chinchilly, it will almost certainly bite your finger!
