  Why won't my chinchilla sleep?
I just got a chinchilla yesterday morning, and brought it home. It was nervous but eventually fell asleep, then woke up around 8:00 and did normal chinchilla things (running in its wheel, drinking water, etc.) Today I woke up and he was still up doing random things, and now its 2 PM and he's still up and lively. I know I'm not supposed to fool with him for 24 hours so all I've done it talked to it and fed it and such and let it smell me and get used to me, but I haven't fooled with it other than that. I turned off all the lights and TV and stuff in my room and he still won't sleep. Should I be concerned? I know their nocturnal and its just weird that he hasn't even went into his house or anything at all. Is it bad or am I doing something wrong that could be causing this?
Also, he does this thing where he just stands there for long periods of time. I'm not sure if thats normal, either.

Not sure how long as I try not to disturb him in hopes he will sleep.
