Capybaras are amazing. These dog sized Guinea pigs are very social animals and are known for being great pets. They are semi-aquatic and live in groups of up to 100. Spending most of there day in the water they are good swimmers and eat mostly aquatic vegetation.

why you should get one

Like i stated before, they are like dog sized Guinea pigs, but if that is not a good enough reason to get one, then consider how low maintenance they would be. They spend most of their days doing nothing. They can live on grasses, bark, or fruit, and you will never have to worry about cleaning up their poop because they are coprophagous, meaning they eat their own feces in order to digest food.
