Fun With Capybaras



2240

Here is what I don’t know: What the hell that thing is and what it’s doing there. Here is what I do know: It doesn’t belong in public, and if this big rat’s name is anything but Master Splinter then the owner should be put down inhumanely.

    It’s probably cleaner and has fewer fleas and lice than the person holding the leash.

  13. That is my pet capybara, Caplin Rous. He weighs 100 lbs and is very sweet but he has never been to Walmart. This photo appears to have been taken at PetsMart last weekend. Please check out his blog if you want to learn more about capybaras.

    I suppose it is a “seeing eye capybara!” Yeah, that’s it! The owner must be blind because that is one ugly dog! It’s so ugly, it’s cute.

    Yes, it is a capybara. South American. Bill Peet wrote a kids book about one ages ago, called Capyboppy. They don’t make great pets, but as long as it (dunno if a he or a she) is taken care of, that’s good. In Walmart, not so much. I would have a fit if I saw any animal, pet or not, in my local food store. However, I guess here it’s not much of a stretch.

    uuuhh, i don’t think anyone’s mentioned this, but I’m about 100% sure that this picture was taken inside of a PETSMART. Look at the tile pattern. Walmart doesn’t do that, but Petsmart does. And Petsmart uses dark gray shelving units like the one in the background….

To see these mean comments about Capy make me sick, because they don’t know the whole story of this wonderful animal. Go to the blog the owner of Capy posted above and LEARN SOMETHING!!

    This it a carpincho (or capibara, chigüiro or chigüire). Is the biggest rodent in the world, and lives in the humids of South America. Is a creature in exctinction danger. Is a very nice a calm rodent, but is illegal to have one as a pet.

    I know the couple that own’s this capibara, and the it’s name is Caplin. He has been neutered so he doesn’t get tempermental. He has his own kiddie pool too :P The couples’ children gave it to them, but I don’t know the whole story.

    Wait. Nope. It’s a capybara. Damned large rodents and their confusing similarities!

    This is the best looking “person” I’ve seen in Walmart since the goat and chicken that have been shopping there.

    This is Caplin Rous – he is a famous Capybara that lives in Texas, and he was NOT in Walmart. He was at Petsmart. He is on Facebook, he’s been on TV, and he is well kept by his owner in Texas. The person who posted this picture should take it down.

    This is a beautiful capybara named Caplin Rous. He’s quite an international superstar. Plus, this was taken at PetSmart not Walmart. There is a major difference.

    This is Caplin Rous, the most lovely capybara ever!!!! He was visiting Santa with his human friend at PetSmart, NOT WalMart. He shouldn’t be on this site at all; he should be getting the love, not anti-capybara vitriol from a hateful person.

    It’s a Capybara and it’s taken in a PETCO guys, not Walmart. The PETCO brand is on the bird cages in the background.

    Poor Caplin is getting bad reviews because somebody’s a douche and decided to post a PETSMART picture in an anti-WALMART website. Smooth move ex-lax.

    Capybara’s are beautiful and wonderful creatures.
    They are not an endangered or even threatened species as someone tried to claim.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capybara
    And to TJ at the CSPCA, you might want to reserach laws in areas besides the ones you are in charge of. Different States and/or countries have different laws reguarding pets. Research before making accusations please.

    Had never seen one of these until seeing this posting, went to his website and found that he passed away last week. RIP to that interesting animal, seems like he had a good life and I’m sure his owners miss him dearly!

    Too may haters. Putting down animals that some don’t know anything about is ridiculous.
    If it’s not hurting you then leave your stupid recommendations & remarks elsewhere, not to mention the stupid insinuations about the cappys’ owner. Get a life.

    Just an FYI about this animal. It’s a Nutria (I think that’s how you spell it). We have them here in Oregon. They are like a really big rat and they live in water areas simular to beavers

    Omg. You guys are idiots. It’s not a rat. It’s a capybara. The largest rodent in existence. They are related to guinea pigs. Do your homework before you speak.

    All of you who said evil things about this animal should be put down!!!!! This animal is beautiful no matter what it is called or looks like! I love animals and if you don’t then you are clearly un human. So love and accepted all animals for who they are or go put a gun to your head because you don’t deserve to live in this amazing world.
