    Short-tailed Chinchilla

    The range of Chinchilla brevicaudata includes the Andes of southern Peru, Bolivia, northwestern Argentina and northern Chile.

    C. brevicaudata are found in mountain shrub and grassland areas at elevations between 3000 and 4500 m. They make their dens in rock crevices.
    The litter size is fairly small and average only 1.45 young per a litter.
    As soon as C. brevicaudata's fur was discovered, wild populations were hunted almost to extinction.

Every year after they would have two litters a year one in March the other in October. An epidemic in the summer of 1898 killed all of his 13 Chinchillas within a 2-month period.

    1900 Frederico Alberrt, director of the zoological and botanical research station in Santiago, Chile, asked the government to protect the Chinchilla and develop a management program, this was ignored.

    1910 Bolivia, Chile, Argentina as well as Peru governments decide to restrict the number of pelts obtained to stop the wild chinchilla being made extinct

    1920 Decree Law was passed which authorized the Director General of Hunting and Fishing to issue individual case licenses to establish domesticated Chinchilla breeding pens and the trapping of a stated number of wild Chinchilla to stock them. The quota of 50 animals was trapped over a four-month period.
    1921 A second application was granted in 1921 and among these were some of the Brevicaudata species of Chinchilla. These were found a considerable distance from the breeding farm over the Bolivian border and had to be smuggled in.
