capybara invasion

What has big teeth & ruins rich people’s perfectly manicured lawns?

I love animals but I like some more than others. Take the largest rodent in the world, the capybara. It is like a cross between a hippo and a guinea pig, lives in South America, eats grass and is hunted by jaguars and pythons. They can also be kept as pets, but you need a license. They are also excellent swimmers. They live for about 7 years and can weigh up to 80kg. And yes they feature in this week’s Bytesized.


I'd love to chat to you some more.


I usually send out a weekly mailer with a recap of blog posts but also some personal anecdotes. If you want to know about competitions or just catch up in a more personal setting then you might like to receive the mailer.
