Giant rodents

Capybara are the biggest rodents in the world and live in South America, often in large herds. A warning bark from one stops the others grazing and sends them all running across the grasslands and waterways. The males will fight over their territory and all capybara are vegetarian. Rodents are the most adaptable of mammals.
