The Capybara is a large rodent that is native to South America. They can weigh up to 75 pounds and measure over 3 feet in length! They are semi-aquatic, meaning they spend a lot of time in the water, and have webbed feet and a waterproof coat that helps keep them insulated.
Capybaras are herbivores and eat mainly grasses, but they will also nibble on tree bark, fruits, and vegetables. They live in groups of 10-20 animals called "herds", and use their long snouts to dig for food beneath the surface of the water or soil.
