Hey there, guys!
Have you ever seen a capybara in Brazil? It’s just the cutest animal you will ever find here.
Capybara in Brazil
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.
Where to find Capybaras
As we mentions earlier, capybaras can be found in Brazilian Pantanal, but if you are lucky, you can also see them in some city parks. Here in Rio de Janeiro for example you can see them at Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas in the South zone of the city and at Bosque da Barra in Barra da Tijuca.
So, when you join us on our RioLIVE! activities, maybe you’ll be able to see one of them.
Now it’s your turn!
