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.

Update (2013/06/06):

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

3rd Birthday Preview

Winston Bumblebee Barcode the 1st and me as Super Capys

Wow! This was the best birthday party EVER. But you know how it is after a big party, you’re really not capable of doing anything requiring cognitive thought. Sorry to say, the same thing is true of capybaras.

 

Party time!

I even asked Leopolda and Cassio to write something up. But if tortoises are slow before they’ve been partying, they are glacial afterward.

I’m afraid you are just going to have to wait until tomorrow night (my real birthday) to hear about the festivities in detail. In the meantime, you have just these two photos to whet your imaginations!

Jack and Jill and Garibaldi

Is this my good side?

Guess what? I was recently in a magazine for kids called Jack and Jill! Melly wrote the article and it is all about what it is like to live with me, your typical house-capybara. Melly makes it sound like I am really demanding as a pet, which, of course, I am. But did she have to tell the whole world? Still, it’s a big step for me as Capybara Ambassador (in training)! Please read the article and let me know what you think. It is called A Day in the Life of Garibaldi Rous.

Sleep, Capybara! Sleep!

 

Sleepy 'bara

This is the earliest known photo of me sleeping, right after I came to live with Melly and Rick. I am 11 months old in this photo and adapting well to my new home. But why, you may ask, do I have a tape measure around my neck? That is something Rick dreamed up to get me used to being harnessed. I ate it a few days later.

Run, Capybara, Run!


Running on my leash

I am not big on running but Melly is big on photographing me running. It’s one of our many conflicts. You can see in the photo above that I am not easy to photograph when I am going fast. I tend to blur due to my great speed! (Just kidding!) I am much better at sleeping, but we’ll get to that in my next post.
