The Capybara is the largest rodent in the world. It is found in South America, and lives in mostly by rivers, swamps and marsh. They can travel between land and water. They eat low growing vegetation. It is preyed by many predators including Anacondas, and Jaguars. They have good sense of hearing and smelling. When a predator gets close they just move from land to water (Jaguar) or water to land (Anaconda). When the first Christian settlers arrived they mistaken the Capybara as fish and ate them as meat for Good Fridays. They still eat them even to this day.
