This is the most unusual pet I have ever seen.
The capybara is related to the guinea pig. It is the world’s largest living rodent. Capybaras may grow to 4.3 ft (130 cm) in length, and weigh up to 140 lb (65 kg). Capybaras eat grass and aquatic plants. They are excellent swimmers and they can sleep underwater, keeping their nose just over the waterline.
This capybara lives in Texas with Melanie Typaldos. His name is Caplin Rous (ROUS stands for Rodent of Unusual Size and is pronounced like “rose”). The pet was named after the character of the movie “The Princess Bride”. Caplin Rous can do some tricks and walk on a leash.
