What is this? Where do they live? Are they normally domestic animals??



This photo released by Melanie Typaldos shows Typaldos and Caplin her pet capybara wearing his Halloween custome. The capybara, Hydrochoerus Hydrochaeris, is a
semi-aquatic rodent of South America. It weighs about a hundred pounds,
and is about 2 feet tall at the shoulder.

Wonderful pictures!! I love guinea pigs and these look like the bonus sized!
Is this lady a big fan of "The Tick". That superhero used to have a Capybara as a pet. I didn't know folks actually kept them as pets, though! How fun!
