My first rodent was a hamster, then gerbils, then mice and rats. I've only owned chinchillas as an adult.

Chinchilla was actually my first rodent. I've never been allowed to have rodents because they all look too much like rats as far as my mom is concerned, although she managed to convince herself that chinchillas are just bunnies with long tails lol

Haha! Yeah I know several people who are afraid of mice/rats, but are ok with chins. They do kinda look like a cross between a mouse and a bunny. xD

Wow chins are tied up with hamsters for #1! I am surprised!

It all started with a hamster, but soon I had a rat, then a chinchilla, then three! I guess you could say my skills have grown a bit

My first rodents were guinea pigs. I got the two of them from the same litter! One was a smooth brown and black one called Chocolate Chip (chip) and the other was a agouti brown and white called Cookies! Please don't judge the naming myself and my sister were young...(well...12 or so)

My first one is mouse then guinea pig. Right now just my chin Candy! Chinchilla is definitely my favorite, though she's much more demanding than the other two. But I know she will stay with me for years to come.

My first rodent was a teddy bear hamster named Zach. I was in 6th grade when I got him. After that I adopted a gerbil from a friend who couldn't take care of him anymore, his name was Biscuit. A few year after Biscuit died I adopted two more gerbils named Bear and Skeltyr. Now I'm 24 and am a proud parent of a chinchilla!
