Meet the giant rodent who gets on with EVERYONE in the animal kingdom (GO VEGAN)

  • The capybara is the world’s largest rodent, and a highly sociable creature
  • They have been observed bonding with a huge variety of other animals
  • Capybara’s can grow to around four foot in length and are semi-aquatic 

If the animal kingdom were a school, this chap would be the most popular student in every class.

Meet the capybara – the world’s largest rodent, which also appears to be the friendliest critter on earth.

The capybara, which can grow to around four feet in length and weigh up to 145lbs, is a highly social semi-aquatic mammal that lives in groups as large as 100, and is native to the forests and marshes of South America.

Images of the furry creatures interacting with just about every other animal you can imagine – from kittens and ducklings to monkeys and a caiman – have been doing the internet rounds of late, and it’s easy to see why.

While uncommon, the capybara’s intelligence and gentle nature means they can be kept as pets, so long as they have access to a sizeable pool, grass to graze on and friends to keep them company.

In short, it’s a wonder Disney hasn’t yet cast this delightful creature as the star of an animated film. Perhaps one day it will.

    1. I totally agree thank you, Darnell.
      Humans will run to their loss …
      They will pay centuries and centuries of murder and torture of innocent animals! Vaninalys

  1. What an amazing animal! Way above humans on the evolutionary scale. Incredible how all creatures take to them and go for cuddles! This fact is not widely reported. Sources only refer to their gregariousness with their own species. Surprisingly, it is reported that they can run as fast as a horse.
    Thank you for this wonderful introduction to the king of rodents.

    1. I am so happy that you are interested, I consider the animal species above ours since my childhood. When I heard slaughtered a pig! This cry screamed in my body! I heard a child scream! This pain is there as a reminder.

      Watching animals live, we learn, we marvel, and we see the stages of our evolution …
      In nature predatory animals are ruthless! But who apart from the “human” beings torture for pleasure and sadism, innocent animals that just want to live! and who for centuries continue to kill for food, or products, fashion, etc … Veganism is a faith that should have prospered already for a long time. This is the supreme ethic. The only progress to follow to evolve and return to a true humanity; that of compassion and humility.
      Thanks. Vaninalys
