Can Chinchillas eat Dried Fruit?

Dried fruit is fruit from which the majority of the original water content has been removed/

This is done either naturally, through sun drying, or through the use of specialized dryers or dehydrators. (source)

So can chinchillas eat dried fruit?

Yes they can but only a very small piece of the following dried fruit.

Dried blueberry
Dried strawberry
Dried cranberry
Dried peach
Dried plum
Dried cherry
Dried apricot
Dried fig
Dried mango
Dried apple
Raisins
Dried currant
Dried banana chip
Dried papaya
Dried pineapple
Dried pear

Nothing more than a small piece though as they will get stomach ache.

Dried fruit has too much sugar in them to eat more than that.
