Why would you cuddle any animal in a pet store? You don't "cuddle" any animal that has had absolutely no time to bond with you, especially a pet store animal that isn't used to being handled. Chinchillas are rodents, and like most rodents, they need to chew constantly to keep their teeth ground down. It's a natural behavior, not an overly aggressive one. It's your own fault for messing with any animal that has not been conditioned to being handled by humans.

i'm guessing you were the little kid that used to hug puppies so tight they'd "go to sleep".... YDI. i'm glad this little guy got away.

YDI. YDI. YDI. You probably opened the cage yourself and grabbed it with none of the staff around. They wouldn't make you pay if it bit you while you were being supervised, for fear of a lawsuit. Just because it looks sweet and fuzzy doesn't mean it won't get scared and bite you.

either you've had them for a long time and they don't care because its you, or you know how to hug them without them feeling cornered. OP probably did the Whole I'ma love him and pet him and squeeze him bit.

No, I agree with 23. even when I first got my chinchilla and he was a baby, he never bit me when I'd cuddle him or just run away. Chinchillas are not like that and don't usually bite.
