When most people think of rodents, mice or squirrels probably come to mind. Most people are also not especially fond of rodents. However, a lot of people make exceptions for capybaras, the world’s largest and cutest rodents. Native to South America, capybaras are closely related to guinea pigs, and they like living near bodies of water. Capybaras are usually found near lakes and rivers in densely forested areas. Because they are a highly social species, they can be found in groups.

當大多數人想到囓齒動物時,可能會想到老鼠或松鼠。大多數人也不是特別喜歡囓齒動物。然而,許多人為水豚這種世界上最大、最可愛的囓齒動物破例。水豚原產於南美洲,與天竺鼠有緊密的親緣關係,牠們也喜歡生活在水域附近。水豚通常出現在樹林茂密的地區中的湖泊和河流附近。由於牠們是高度群居的物種,所以牠們經常成群結隊出現。
