For all of you who have been wondering what is going on with little Mudskipper Rous, here is an update.
She is doing fine. As you can see from the photo above, she loves to eat her grass. Of course, she is also big on corn on the cob, like a typical capybara. She is just over 100 lbs now. Still growing.
Her chompers are in good shape.
She’s quite athletic. She loves the water now.
She is channeling Garibaldi by rolling in the water. She is not as good at it as he was, but I expect she’ll improve in time.
Look at those feet! And you can see the tip of her nose too.
Driftwood is also doing well. Muddy dwarfs him now. She loves being with Driftwood and follows him around the house.
She also has a new cat friend, Mamba. Mamba was a feral kitten but he’s adapted well to the domestic life.
I have no idea what Mamba got into here. Probably some flowers or something. His true color is black tabby. You can just barely see some stripes on him.
Like most capybaras, Muddy gets along with everybody. So does Driftwood.
Sorry I haven’t posted in months. My vision problems keep me from working on the computer much or taking many photos. Plus everything takes so much longer now. I’ll try to be better about it.
