I hope everyone remembers how Cristian Dimitrius came all the way from Brazil to film me for a TV show called Domingão Aventura, which mean Sunday Adventure in Portuguese. (If you missed my blog post on it you can read it here: Domingão Aventura.) Well, the time has come for my cute little nose to make my big Brazilian appearance! If you live in Brazil, or if you can get Brazilian TV somehow, be sure to watch for me! The show is Domingão do Faustao, Sunday Afternoon at Globo TV. My part should be on at about 7 pm.
I am not trying to bite anyone in the photo above, I am just showing off my beautiful teeth. No humans or capybaras were harmed in the making of this TV show, although I did hurt my paw due to an unrelated accident.
The capybara part of the show is going to be in three parts. The first part will be about wild capybaras in Brazil. The second part is also about wild capys but this part focuses on some that live in parks and rivers inside the great city of São Paulo. And the third part is going to be about me because I am the World’s Most Famous Capybara, or I will be after the show airs.
Well, I guess Capycoppy or Super Capy might steal the show and become the most famous capybaras. They are both camera hogs.
The timing of the show is a bit suspicious though. Lent has just started and that is a very bad time for wild capybaras. In much of South America, humans kill and eat cute little capybaras during lent because of some dumb thing a pope of the Catholic church said centuries ago. It is times like these when I am especially glad to be a pet. But maybe if people see the program they will understand what wonderful animals we are and stop killing us. Just a thought.
