Capybaras Near The Beni River   Leave a comment

BoliviaCapybaras Near The Beni River, Madidi National Park 

The capybara is a mammal that resembles a giant long-legged guinea pig.
It lives in groups near water, which is why we were able to see them
going down rivers in Madidi National Park. The capybara is the largest living rodent.

They are a favorite food of the jaguar, which may explain why some of our group
were able to see a jaguar that had just eaten a capybara near the river shore.
