Abstract : Normal blood values are reported for 41-male and 52-female chinchillas of the Laniger strain whose ages ranged from 1-8 years. In addition, femoral bone marrow was characterized. Cells per unit volume of marrow, and relative abundance of different cell types were determined. No significant difference was noted between the mean values for each sex for any of the parameters determined except the peripheral RBC values. (Author)
