Here be 100 lb rodents

Here be 100 lb rodents

Here you can see I tried to approach the capybara, which usually grow to 4 feet long, 2 feet tall, and weigh well over a hundred pounds. It was munching on some fruit that had fallen from a nearby tree and basically ignored me in favor of eating it’s lunch, until I got too close for comfort and it scampered off.
