Paper towels are used to clean up kitchen or bathroom mess and hugely popular around the world as a disposable cleaning material.
They are wrapped around a cardboard tube tightly so as to keep the roll together.
Paper towels are often used by owners in chinchilla cages as a lining or can be used as bedding.
So can chinchillas eat paper towels?
Yes they can as long as they don’t contain anything toxic on them.
However, they are not nutritious for chinchillas so shouldn’t be fed as a food.
They are fine for them to chew on and they will well and truly rip them to shreds.
