No, it's highly unlikely. Their fur is too dense and doesn't allow for fleas to make it to the skin. As long as you are giving the chin regular dust baths and their fur is in good condition, they should be fine.

Chillas are great in that they don't get fleas and are quite clean in their cages.
Make sure that you buy special Chinchilla DUST and not sand...it is most important for them to have this at least 2-3 times a week during warm weather to keep their fur clean and fluffy.
Also, choose your chilla carefully; check his eyes, ears, feet, teeth, and bum area.

Please have pets spayed or neutered and wearing an ID tag.
Adoption is the only option
