Last weekend I had the chance to visit a local capybara owner who had two capys give birth on the same day. The ten babies were just five days old when I visited and it’s hard to imagine anything cuter. I just have to share the photos with all of Caplin’s fans.
These babies will be offered for sale in a few weeks and, no, we are not getting a second capybara! If you contact me, I can send your email to their owner. PLEASE read the FACute and the post on When Capybaras Bite before considering getting a pet capybara. They are always incredibly cute but they are large animals and they do not have the tolerance of a dog or a cat.
These guys were really eepy but the parents didn’t seem to get upset about it. I don’t know why Coral and Carl, who visited with me, felt they had to put food on its head. This may well have been this little capy’s first solid food.
Wish I could post all my photos but this will have to do.
