Capybaras Make Dreams Come True

A new friend (and excellent author), Jeff VanderMeer, recently asked me if I would pose in a photo for a friend of his who (naturally) loves capybaras and had an upcoming birthday. Being so incredibly photogenic, I obliged. She’s written a blog post about it. I’m happy that I can do good around the world by just being cute. It is, after all, what I do best.

Japanese zoo has roaming capybaras and tank for viewing swimming from the side

“From late July, visitors to a zoo in Saikai, Nagasaki Prefecture, will be able to see capybaras swimming–the first time the animals will go on display in such a way in Japan.”

Here’s a video of a capybara viewing tank at the BioDome in Nagasaki, Japan.
