    Just saw a capybara on the today show.

    Anyone else catch it?

    I was busy posting in the forum, but I think they were showing exotic animals in the segment.

    Here is link to some wonderful photos of animals sitting on capybaras. They seem such peaceful, unflappable dudes!

    I think they look wise, like the sages of the animal kingdom. They seem to like company anyhow...

    Their laying-down poses look just like guinea pigs laying down. I'd love to meet a capybara.

    Thanks for the link and the pics. They are very cute. I've read that they are very docile and easy going. But, if you are considering one - there's a blog about that too - sounds like guinea pig care x 100!

    Yeah, I wouldn't want to own one. I think I'll stick to domesticated animals!

    I would want one if I lived in a tropical area and had a pool. But my hubby's answer would be the exact same!

    Wow, and we all complain about the hay that gets scattered all over the house - imagine having a BALE loose in the dining room! I hope they don't become popular or trendy as pets, as few people would have the dedication to look after them as they deserve.

    The pictures on the blog are so cute!
