• monaural
  • In an effort to more fully understand the results of long term exposures to impulse noise as they relate to asymptotic threshold shift (ATS), five monaural chinchillas were exposed to a repetitive, reverberant impulse noise for 10 days. (cdc.gov)
  • AEP thresholds were obtained from monaural chronically implanted chinchillas at 0.5, 1,2,4, and 8 kHz using first free-field and then insert earphone stimuli. (cdc.gov)
  • railway station
  • With the Western Railway extension from Dalby to Dulacca constructed in the 1870s, the Chinchilla railway station opened at Charley's Creek in January 1878, and remained the railhead until August that year. (wikipedia.org)
  • The town of Chinchilla was surveyed around the railway station in late 1880/early 1881, and in the last two decades of the 19th century, developed as a railway locomotive depot (mid-way on the Toowoomba-Roma run), and as a service centre to surrounding pastoral properties. (wikipedia.org)
  • chromosome
  • The l7Rn6 4234SB allele is closely linked to c on distal chromosome 7 and was maintained on a mixed genetic background opposite a wild-type chromosome marked by the chinchilla ( c ch ) locus, a partial loss-of-function allele at the tyrosinase locus ( R inchik and C arpenter 1993 , 1999 ). (genetics.org)
  • This protein is expressed in keratinocytes and the gene is found on chromosome 9, adjacent to the type I interferon cluster. (wikipedia.org)
  • relatives
  • Unlike their smaller-pet relatives, chinchillas need to be provided a dust bath so they can bathe two to three times a week to mimic their cleaning habits in their natural environment. (pijac.org)
  • despite
  • Rapid eradication of the prickly pear following the introduction of cactoblastis larvae in the mid-1920s opened the area to closer settlement, and during the 1930s Chinchilla prospered as a district centre, despite worldwide economic depression. (wikipedia.org)
  • teeth
  • Chinchillas must have extensive exercise and dental care, due to their teeth continually growing throughout their life span, and since they lack the ability to sweat, temperatures need to be carefully controlled. (wikipedia.org)
  • wild
  • Whereas l7Rn6 mRNA levels were indistinguishable from wild type, l7Rn6 4234SB homozygotes exhibited decreased expression of the truncated protein, suggesting protein instability. (genetics.org)
  • A mutation diluted the yellow pigment in the hairs to almost white, changing in this way the color of the fur of the wild rabbit (agouti) into chinchilla. (wikipedia.org)
  • Historically, chinchillas lived in an area that included parts of Bolivia, Peru, Argentina, and Chile, but today colonies in the wild are known only in Chile. (wikipedia.org)
  • Though it is illegal to hunt wild chinchillas, the wild animals are now on the verge of becoming extinct because of continued illegal hunting. (wikipedia.org)
  • Time
  • I mean don't get me wrong, you can cuddle with a chinchilla and play with them, just not for long periods of time. (hubpages.com)
  • The American Chinchilla Rabbit is listed on "The Livestock Conservancy as being the only "critically endangered" rabbit at this time. (wikipedia.org)
  • He entered the race driving an ERA E-type, but the manufacturer was unable to deliver the chassis in time, so Walker used his older B-type. (wikipedia.org)
  • It comes from the time before the Expulsion of 1492, and was used within the Jewish community, though popular poems in Galicia already used this type of versification. (wikipedia.org)
  • Animals
  • Chinchillas aren't as friendly and socialable as many of the other small animals out in the pet world, such as ferrets and rats, but with the correct socialization and training, they can be very sweet and docile. (hubpages.com)
  • larger
  • Now, this is a fine STARTER cage, as it only housed one chinchilla for just a few months before I upgraded to a much larger cage. (hubpages.com)

  • In 1917, 1920 and 1922 devastating fires which destroyed many of the commercial buildings in Chinchilla Street (one entire side was destroyed in 1922). (wikipedia.org)
  • name
  • QUIZ: Can you name every Normal-type Pokémon by its category name? (sporcle.com)
  • For the sake of consistency and simplicity, each Pokémon is referred to only by its name, even if it has a differently-named alternate form that specifically causes it to be a Normal-type Pokémon. (sporcle.com)
  • Chile
  • It is found only in Chile where its habitat is Mediterranean-type scrub on the western side of the Andes. (wikipedia.org)
  • Care
  • Be advised that past care, age, general health, and the type and severity of the health problem, including how long it's been neglected, will affect how the chin responds to any kind of treatment. (chincare.com)
  • body type
  • Body type markings differ between European and American Checkered Giants, although they are considered the same breed. (wikipedia.org)
  • original
  • The pedestal, refurbished by the Toowoomba firm of Zeigler's and incorporating the original marble plates but not its four urns, was erected at Fuller Place in Heeney Street, in front of the Chinchilla Civic Centre where it was re-dedicated on 17 March 1979. (wikipedia.org)
  • With the rebuilding complete none of the original type remain in service. (wikipedia.org)
  • free
  • Measurements of the acoustic transfer function (ATF) of the pinnae of 8 chinchillas were compared with the auditory-evoked potential (AEP) thresholds of 16 chinchillas measured in free field and with insert earphones. (cdc.gov)
