The Fantastical Capybara: An Interview with Melanie Typaldos About Her Caplin Rous

I’ve seen capybara in the wild, and they are indeed fascinating and bizarre creatures. The phrase gruffly wise” does indeed sum up their appearance quite well, though I would describe their vocalisations as being like those of a guinea pig rather than a Geiger counter, but perhaps I’ve never heard a twittering Geiger counter.

I’m not sure I approve totally of keeping a lone capybara as a pet because they are highly social animals, but he sounds as if he gets plenty of social contact from his humans to make up for it.
