Not all their hair, but some clumps do fall out when they get scared. It's part of their defense- if a predator grabs them, chinchillas can "slip" their fur and hopefully get the predator to drop them. Mouthful of fur is kinda gross. XD
Oh wow, you have a bunch. I had two boys at one point, but the black one died at around 13-14 years. The beige one keeps on keepin on. He's a cool little dude. I'm not sure where I can find another non-pet store chinny like him.
