A little different post today. This is a furbaby I WOULD have if I could!
A CAPYBARA! YEP - a rodent.
Capybaras have heavy, barrel-shaped bodies and short heads with reddish-brown fur on the upper part of their body that turns yellowish-brown underneath. Adult capybaras may grow to 4.3 ft in length, and weigh up to 140 lbs. Capybaras have slightly webbed feet, no tail, and 20 teeth. Their back legs are slightly longer than their front legs and their muzzles are blunt with eyes, nostrils, and ears on top of their head. Females are slightly heavier than males. Females: 80 to 145 pounds. Males: 75 to 135 pounds. I always wanted a Capybara. Perhaps it's from Bill Peet's book, Cappybobby. Or maybe it's just because I am a devoted guinea pig lover and these are just giant guinea pigs. Here's some pictures of real Capybaras. Maybe someday this will be my very own furbaby!
