Your morning adorable: Chinchilla eats -- nay, savors -- a raisin

October 8, 2009 | 11:50 am

We are big fans of chinchillas (animals, not coats),  but we can't decide what we like best about the little rodents. Is it their ultra-soft fur, their penchant for dust-bathing or their tendency to perform acrobatic maneuvers? We suspect it might be none of the above, because we also love the delicate way they handle food with their tiny, humanlike hands.

Little Stringbean, the lucky chinchilla above, has just gotten his (tiny, humanlike) hands on his very favorite treat: a raisin. We can't believe it takes him more than a minute to eat it, and further, we can't believe we wanted to watch it all over again as soon as he was done!
