- Capybara’s can grow to around four foot in length and are semi-aquatic
If the animal kingdom were a school, this chap would be the most popular student in every class.
Meet the capybara – the world’s largest rodent, which also appears to be the friendliest critter on earth.
The capybara, which can grow to around four feet in length and weigh up to 145lbs, is a highly social semi-aquatic mammal that lives in groups as large as 100, and is native to the forests and marshes of South America.
Images of the furry creatures interacting with just about every other animal you can imagine – from kittens and ducklings to monkeys and a caiman – have been doing the internet rounds of late, and it’s easy to see why.
While uncommon, the capybara’s intelligence and gentle nature means they can be kept as pets, so long as they have access to a sizeable pool, grass to graze on and friends to keep them company.
In short, it’s a wonder Disney hasn’t yet cast this delightful creature as the star of an animated film. Perhaps one day it will.
