Set of standing elevation drawings of the Capybara

The Capybara, or Hydrochoerus hydrochaeris, is identified as the largest living rodent in the world. Native to South America, the Capybara is a semi-aquatic mammal inhabiting the grasslands near water. As such, the Capybara is a skillful swimmer with the ability to submerge itself for an extended period and even fall asleep in water while keeping its nose and eyes above.

Physically, the Capybara is pig-shaped and blunt-muzzled with reddish-brown brittle fur. The Capybara’s diet generally consists of grasses and aquatic plants, but it is known to feed on its own feces in order to obtain protein.

Rodents are classified by a single pair of continuously growing incisors in both their upper and lower jaws; the length of their incisors are maintained by gnawing, which is how they eat. The diet of Rodents usually consists of seeds and plants, but some species do have more varied diets.
