Lowland Paca

Collection of scaled elevation drawings of the Lowland Paca

Also known as the spotted paca, the Lowland Paca is a rodent native to the subtropical regions of North and South America. Scientifically known as Cuniculus paca, the Lowland Paca gets its secondary name from its physical appearance: a dark brown coat with rows of white spots running down its sides.

Other physical characteristics include: a large head, short thick legs, and a seemingly nonexistent or nub of a tail. The Lowland Paca is noted to be skillful diggers, swimmers, and climbers. It builds bankside burrows, avoids danger by submerging into the water, and can gather fruits from trees.

Lowland Pacas have a height of 11”-14.6” (28-37 cm), body length between 23.6”-31.5” (60-80 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 13-31 lb (6-14 kg). The tail length of a Lowland Paca is 5.1”-9” (13-23 cm). Lowland Pacas have a typical lifespan of up to 12 years in the wild and between 12-16 years in captivity.

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.
