Capybaras are the world’s largest rodent and are related to guinea pigs, hamsters
and mice.

They are found in Central and South America, where they roam swampy, grassy regions bordering rivers, ponds, streams, and lakes. The capybara is not currently classified as an endangered species, although it is threatened by deforestation, habitat destruction, and poaching.

The capybara young are at the San Diego Zoo’s Elephant Odyssey alongside the Baird’s tapir.
