Dates are a fruit that measures between 2 – 3 cm in diameter and 3 – 7 cm long in length.
The colors of dates range from bright yellow in color to bright red and are often eaten as a snack by many people in the world. They have a single stone pit in the middle of them.
So can chinchillas eat dates at all?
No, chinchillas cannot eat dates at all because they contain a lot of acidic and phosphorus content which is bad for them.
If a chinchilla was to try and eat dates it would cause them to have stomach issues and therefore should be avoided fully.
