Get to know WFMU’s Mascot, Dusty

Inquiring minds want to know more about WFMU’s new mascot, Dusty the chinchilla.  Dusty is a four-year-old standard gray female chinchilla. She’s a single mother to one-year-old Izzy. Both were adopted from a chinchilla rescue organization. Dusty’s favorite snacks include dried apples and Quaker oats. Hobbies include gnawing on wood and cackling like a rooster. Watch Dusty take a bath!
