cryingpunk asked: Hello! I currentlly keep my chinchilla in a room without windows. She doesn't bark or anything. Every night I open the door and leave the light on for about 2 hours or so (I also play with her during this time). However, I'm worried that the lack of light might affect her health or something? Is she fine or should I move her somewhere else?
I also keep my chinchilla in a room without much sunlight. While it is undeniably better for them to have access to daylight, sometimes it’s not easy or possible depending on your living situation! Since chins sleep during the day, sunlight helps to regulate their sleep cycles. I do think she needs more than 2 hours of light, even if it’s artificial! You might want to invest in a daylight-simulating lightbulb, and leave it on during the day if the room doesn’t get any sunlight.
