Call me crazy but I fell in love with these creatures as a potential pet. I can’t get one though because they require a decent sized plot of land and a pond or creek to swim in. They are aquatic. They also like to live in groups. I find them fascinating, but they are also short lived. They only live about 5-7 years.
Anyway, in case you never heard of the Capybara they are the world’s largest rodent. They are like a cross between a beaver and an guinea pig. They love company but they aren’t 100% domesticated. Still, they are kind of cool.
