Funny: Dog and Capybara

This video is sure funny. These animals like to touch each other.

This is like a huge gigantic mouse. This animal is huge. It is easy to mistake it for a dog. The capybara (Hydrochoerus hydrochaeris) is the largest rodent in the world. It looks similar to a guinea pig the size of a Labrador retriever. Capybaras are found in most of South America and live in forests next to the water. Capybaras are herbivores, grazing mainly on grasses and aquatic plants, as well as fruit and tree bark.

  1. This capybara looked like a dog to me. I never thought it was a rodent like a mouse or a rat.

    The interesting fact is, the capybara is a giant cavy rodent native to South America. It is the largest living rodent in the world. Also called Capivara, chigüire, chigüiro and carpincho. It is certainly a member of the genus Hydrochoerus, of which the only other extant member is the lesser capybara.

    The capybara could grow up to be heavy weight like 66 kg. It could be height of 64 cm. It could be length of 1.3 m.

    These amazing animals are quite agile on land and in the water. They are excellent swimmers, and can remain completely submerged for up to 5 minutes. That's how they hide from predators.

    Unbelievable - Capybaras can sleep in water, keeping only their noses out of the water.
