The lesser of ticks

I saw some things I've always wanted to see and got some awesome mammal ticks in Panama. This is probably the least awesome of the ticks.

Lesser Capybara, Hydrochoerus isthmius. If you've seen normal Capybara (the one found everywhere else besides eastern Panama, northwestern Colombia and western Venezuela) this is.....exactly the same as far as I can see.

Still basically a giant guinea pig.
