Hunchback

This is a general sign of ill health. A hunchbacked chin most often exhibits hunchback when the diet is much less than optimal. Poor nutritional intake may be in the form of not enough food, the wrong kind of food, nutrients that are not in the proper combinations or readily absorbed and other metabolic or digestive issues. The chinchilla is most often underweight when showing this symptom and is usually more pronounced with anorexia.
