One of the unique attributes that we appreciate about capybara is their love for water. Capybara are one of the most aquatic rodent species in the world and enjoy a cool pool on a hot summer day! July 10th is Capybara Appreciation Day is honors the largest rodent in the world, twice as big as a beaver!
