Exotic Animals
About This Project

The Capybara is the largest rodentin the world, weighing up to 90kg (14 stone). Highly social, they are often seen in groups of up to 100.

They are semi-aquatic and so love wading around in our Watercress Beds. In the wild they live by muddy rivers and ponds, using them as a source of food as well as hiding from predators. They can stay under water for five minutes.

Capybara will typically breed twice a year, giving birth to between 1-8 young each time.
