School Visit: Reilly Elementary

 

Here we go again!

It’s not easy being a Capybara Ambassador (in training). It’s not all tweeting and posting cute photos. Some of it involves actual, inperson (incapybara?) interaction…with children! I’m not saying I’m scared of children or anything, after all, they’re just baby humans, but there is something a little intimidating about them. Maybe it’s how active they are. Or how noisy. Or that there are always a lot of them. But it’s an important part of my job so I do it willingly, even if I do shake a little and sweat a lot. Continue reading “School Visit: Reilly Elementary” »

BlogPaws 2013

Super Capy’s blog:

Hi! It’s me again, Super Capy! I’ve had another adventure and I’d like to share it with you. This time I traveled by plane with Melly all the way to Washington DC to go to the 2013 BlogPaws convention. BlogPaws is a convention for crazy people who blog about their pets. I had a whole lot of fun, met many new friends and witnessed the beautiful and the weird (that last includes Melly).

Capy on the Loose in UK

 

Capybara at Henly on the Thames

Okay my UK friends and fans, now is your chance! This beautiful photo was taken by one of your compatriots, Alan Harvey, somewhere near Henly on the Thames. Look how nicely the capybara is posing! According to a recent newspaper article, the capy is an adult male who is quite tame. However, I suggest you just take photos and don’t get too close. Even tame, we have huge teeth that are razor sharp and he might get scared and do something rash.

If you do see the capy, please call 07802805893 so that he can be returned safely home. The wilds of England are not safe for a capybara so I hope he gets home soon.

Everyone can stop looking now, Jack has been returned safely to his home.

A Loving Eye

Owner’s blog:

It is always hard to say goodbye to a beloved pet, but it is never harder than when the pet is a capybara. Every single capybara is a unique and wonderful creature whose demanding love forever changes those around them. Rocco is a special story though because, unlike every other capy I have blogged about, Rocco was born wild. His is a hard story, but it needs to be told.
