I don't have them anymore, but I kept mine in a converted aviary when we did have them! They love to bounce around and destroy things, so I wouldn't keep them in any cage that isn't all metal (with wood shelves) as they'd chew their way out of a plastic bottomed cage.

Digging out pics for ya now :)

Chinchillas

Yes I keep them and breed them. The cage pictured is ideal because they are very keen chewers and are active alot. PM me if you need any information or if I can help you with anything. andy
