The capybara is the world's largest rodent, known for its friendly and sociable nature. Native to South America, these creatures are semi-aquatic and are often found near water sources. They are herbivores that primarily feed on aquatic plants and grasses. Capybaras are highly social animals and live in groups, which helps protect them from predators like jaguars and anacondas. Their gentle disposition has made them a popular attraction in zoos worldwide.
