Kapi’yva Exotics: Part II


#1) Scarlet and Scarlotta

Owner’s blog:

I was going to write a nice blog about all the capybaras at Kapi’yva Exotics, showing photos of each along with us interacting with them, but when I went through all of my photos I realized there are just too many of Garibaldi’s mom, Scarlet, and baby sister, whom I call Scarlotta, that I have to share. So I am dedicating this post to just these two capybaras. Hope y’all don’t mind.

#2) Scarlotta

I don’t really have a lot to say about each photo so instead I decided to just have a kind-of photo contest. I have numbered each shot and put a poll in the right side bar for you to vote for your favorite. (If you are reading this sometime in the distant future, I am sorry to say that the poll will be gone.)


#3) Scarlotta

She is sure a cutie.

#4) Scarlet

Maybe Garibaldi gets his good looks from his mother.


#5) What an expressive face Scarlet has!

#6) Coral feeding Scarlet through the fence

#7) Mother and baby

It seems as if Scarlotta has the fur on her neck standing up in Garibaldi’s signature mohawk!


#8) Mothers and daughters never get along

#9) This is the big girl bath

#10) I just need a few minutes of peace!


#11) Well, I guess you ARE a big girl!


#12) Lean on me


#13) Ah, that feels good


#14) Scarlotta back on dry ground

Don’t forget to watch the video!

    Hi Melly and all the Capys. I love all your pictures. Mel, you are so lucky to be able to hold such a Blessed Bundle of Cuteness. I cannot believe that a 1 day old Capy is so active. I want a house full of them. Garibaldi Rous has such a great life with you. Don’t ever stop sending pictures. I treasure them all. Give the Capys a big hug and kiss from me. Blessings, Ann

    Love your captions! “Mothers and daughters never get along” cracked me up.

    The pics of the mom and baby capy in the pool remind me of when I used to cuddle with my mom in bed and I used to call her Momby.
