Where to Find Me

Caplin Rous on my tumblr blog

It occurred to me that not everyone knows how to find me on the web. I mean, obviously you know that I am here on my blog or you wouldn’t be reading this, but I am other places too.

20/20 Hindsight

Me and HP with Me and HP on TV

What a relief that 20/20 appearance is behind me (literally in the photo above). It was so stressful not knowing if they were going to portray me in a good light or not. Sure I’m ultra-adorable but I do have my dark side.

Rodent Draw

Remember my first contest, Putting Caplin Rous is My Life? It was about photoshopping me into a photo with you. I got a lot of really great entries but the problem was that not everyone has a good photo editor. All this time I’ve been feeling pretty sorry for those people who can’t make an image of me with them. I know almost everyone wants to.

My Fame Stretches to 30 minutes

Me with Neptune

Me with Neptune

Against all odds, my famosity has extended beyond the run-of-the-mill 15 minute variety. I dare say I have achieved a full 30 minutes! This is great because as Capybara Ambassador it is my job to let people know about us capybaras, including how cute and how smart we are. I am being super successful at that, not that I like to brag. I had a whole bunch of articles written about me this month, too many to put links to all of them so these are just some highlights. The photo of me with Neptune was one of the most popular photos used. I can understand why because we sure look cute together.

The LA Times

Planeta Bizzaro (in Brazil)

The Telegraph (in the UK)

EToday (in Russian!)

PEOPLEPets and msnbc.com

HLN.BE (Belgium)

I did a video segment for KENS5 in San Antonio, Texas

Here’s an article on Hobby.cz about me in Czech!

Here is an article about me in Pets Best Newsroom. Question is, why did they use a photo of some other capybara? That is not me.

I even got a dumb reference from the comedian, Dave Barry. Not sure I like those comments.

And wow! Look, here’s an article about me in Thai!

There were more, including one in a newspaper in Hong Kong that I couldn’t get a link to. So you can see that I am Capybara Ambassador Extraordinaire!

I want to thank Linda Lombardi of the Associated Press. She started this whole thing rolling with her article about me. Thanks Linda!
