While at an awesome 1st Birthday party at the Community Center of the Plum Creek neighborhood in Kyle I was able to hold this little chinchilla. These guys are really REALLY soft.
The animal belongs to Chelsea Phillips who owns a traveling petting zoo called Tiny Tails To You. She's based out of Austin.. and was the most impressive (quality and caring) small scale petting zoo I've seen.
Oh.. and photo credit goes to my 6 year old Marlee.
