The Elusive Lesser Capybara: Video Edition

A lesser capybara

Smelly is being really lazy about getting her photos together of the lesser capybaras she saw in Panama. In case you’ve forgotten about them (but how could you?) here is a link to our first post on lesser capys.

Lumpy Gari (Part 3)

 

My butt hurts

This is the third and final installment of the story of my recent trip to the vet at Texas A&M.

There aren’t any photos of me in the car on the way home from the vet. That is because I was miserable. I stood behind Rick’s seat the whole drive. I didn’t eep. I didn’t want anything to eat. I didn’t try to crawl on Rick’s lap. I didn’t watch out the rear window to make sure Sheldon was following. I didn’t do anything. When we got home I continued to stand and not do anything. Melly says Dr. Hoppes gave me a shot of pain medication before I woke up. Either that wasn’t very strong or my pain would have been even worse.

Me and the vets

If you have been following my exploits (and I think you’d better have a darned good excuse if you haven’t been), then you know that I recently went to the small animal clinic at Texas A&M University (TAMU) in College Station, Texas to have some abscesses removed. Just to refresh your memory, Melly blogged about it here. After ten days, I was supposed to have my stitches taken out. Considering how stressful the drive was for me and the fact that Dr. Hoppes and her team had to come to Austin to take care of a zoo lion anyway, we all decided a house call was in order.

Me and Leopolda

 

Me and Leopolda sharing the lawn

Probably most you know that I have a tortoise co-pet named Leopolda (Leah for short). Melly tells me Caplin clicked at her, bit at her shell and tried to chase her around the yard, except that she didn’t care. I guess I’m just more easy going than Caplin was because I don’t feel any need to chase Leah. There’s grass enough for everybody, that’s my motto.

Hungry, Hungry Capybaras

How much can those little guys eat?

My owner says the Capycoppies were made in my image and I guess it must be true because they are just like me in that they love yogurt. I’m not so crazy about their yogurt consumption though. What if my owner runs out? I am not sure she has really planned for this.

Stop begging!

They don’t give me a moment’s peace. Look at them eying my yogurt in my bowl!  My owner gave them their own but it is just never enough.

Capycoppy feeding frenzy

I almost sympathize with this. My owner really never gives me enough and the Capycoppies are probably always hungry. I suppose they are still growing and might someday be as big as me.

How many bowls of yogurt can they eat?

I guess I shouldn’t ask that question since it has never been answered for me and I am only one capybara. Poor little guys aren’t really that good at sharing.

Like Capy like Coppy
