Another capybara from the same family group as yesterday's posting.internal link The staff from the Camp put out piles of leaves near the shore of a lake on their property. This tempted the capybaras to come close enough to be seen from the little boats we were in.internal link

Everyone's favorite rodent, the Capybara! internal link I have wanted to see one in the wild since I was 10 years old and first read about them in a library book. external link

I saw a large family group of about 5 adults and many young ones. Looking like guinea pigs on steroids they still managed to be adorable.
