I know some of you feel a little squeemy about big (or little) snakes so I thought I'd follow up with something unquestionably a little cuter today. This is a mother capybara (the world's largest rodent) nursing her young.


They always seem to arrange themselves two on one side and one on the other. You can just make out the other sets of legs under mum.

There is actually one or two capy's loose in the Suwannee Valley.

I'm sure it probably won't stay at one or two for long! They are actually rather delicious (a topic for another post perhaps) so if one were pondering a methodology for their removal that might motivate joe public.
