Every Day, a new capybara picture

Capybara (Hydrochoerus hydrochaeris) is the largest living rodent in the world. It is related to agouti, chinchillas, coyphillas, and guinea pigs. Its common name, derived from Kapiÿva in the Guarani language means "master of the grasses" while its scientific name, hydrochaeris, is Greek for "water hog".
[From wikipedia]

Every day, I hope to post a new photo of the most wonderful of animals, the capybara!
