Toni was invited to go live on TV for RTHK 31 All Being Well with Alyson Hau and Ben Cullen. The entire team and the production are so professional. There’s no script and not much preparation in advance. That’s fun! They learned about animals. We learned how a live TV show is produced smoothly. Our panther chameleon and Dominican mountain boa were doing a great job as well!
We have recently adopted and rehomed many pets that couldn’t make it to stay with their families due to the mass emigration from Hong Kong.
This chinchilla is from a repatriating expat. She was so sad and couldn’t hold her tears when I picked him up. I hope this video will make her feel better when she misses him.
I can’t wait to let this new boy meet my chinchilla girl. They’re about the same age. I heard he’s never had a girlfriend before 🙂 My girl has never had a boyfriend either.
Among all the popular pet small mammals like hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits, bunnies, chipmunks, squirrels, meerkats, prairie dogs, mongooses, skunks, raccoons, jerboas, gerbils, hedgehogs, ferrets, and sugar gliders, Chinchillas are one of the most sought-after exotic pets, especially in Asia. But ironically the climate here is way too hot for these fluff balls originally from the Andes mountains. We have to keep our chinchillas in rooms with AC on 24/7 together with other “cool” animals such as axolotls, many salamanders, mandarin rat snakes, impressed tortoises, fire snails, etc
My Neighbor Totoro the 1988 Japanese animated fantasy film written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki and animated by Studio Ghibli for Tokuma Shoten made chinchillas known to many people. And, Minccino the Pokémon is a chinchilla. Did you know that?
During the over 4,000 kids parties we have done, we have tried all sorts of cakes you could buy in Hong Kong. Many animal-themed cakes were nice, but not quite like “real” animals.
We are specialized in wildlife and, on the side, our owner also runs a western restaurant in Central – That’s why we started making animal cakes!
Our cakes don’t only look great but also make a lot of sense biologically, based on the details of real animals – The body structure, colors, skin, scales, physical characteristics, and all details of the exact species that are literally living in nature.
All our cakes are custom. Other than realistic ones, if you’d like imaginary animals we can also make it. Please let us know your favorite animal and details for your cake.
Some animals are just too cute and everyone wants one as pet. But what can take it to the next level is you can learn about their life in the wild! We have made this video about hedgehogs both live with us in Hong Kong and their wild cousins we met in Africa.
