Chinchillas are very active, and are able to leap 3 feet (91 cm) straight up in the air. The larger the cage, the better - one that is 3 x 2 x 2 feet (1 x 0.6 x 0.6 m) is a good starting point. Welded wire mesh is acceptable, with solid flooring in one area. Multiple levels should be provided in the cage for jumping and climbing - wooden perches or non-pesticide laden tree branches work well.
