Chinchillas are nocturnal, so they become very active late at night. They sleep during the day, although sometimes mine wants to play for a few minutes in the afternoon. Were you able to do any research before you got the chinchilla?

I had the same problem. My Chinchilla is up all night bouncing off the walls. There really is no solution, except that she will be awake whenever I'm in the house, so she gets to come out at those times.

Its their natural instinct to be awake at night. I noticed that if I bring mine out around 7pm and play with him for at least two hours, he gets tired and will be more quit during the night. Last night he only was out of his cage for 30 minutes and ran around his cage all night.
