First thing you need to know about the Capybara in Brazil is that it’s a wild animal, so forget the idea of having one in you house. Even though they are not dangerous at all, you can’t have it as a pet.

Some technical information for you guys: the capybara is the world’s largest rodent and it inhabits forest zones specially next to rivers and lakes. They are usually found in the Brazilian Pantanal. It is a mammal native to South America and it usually live in groups of 10 to 20 individuals.
