The Goofiest Rodent

It’s also the biggest. The capybara is a peculiar beast.

“If threatened, it’s usual response is to flee into the water, where it dives staying submerged for several minutes.” – Guia de Fauna Selvestre, Selva & Pampas

We clearly weren’t very threatening.

    medium pig-sized, but cuter (for a rodent anyway). Or, imagine a Labrador that’s more like a rat.

    Buster is not that fat!!! Maybe he is, but he’s cuter.

    For those who give up meat for Lent or on Friday’s, the capybara is considered fish.
