It's Friday, so here's a slideshow of capybaras from around the world

What do you mean you’ve never heard of them?

HAPPY FRIDAY. WE hope you’ve had a good week and that you’re looking forward to the weekend.

What better way to get it started then to look at a slideshow of a cute animal.

This week, the Capybara. The what? The capybara. Our attention was first drawn to this South American rodent (I know, but they’re still cute. Honest) by this amazing Tumblr: Capybaras that look like Rafael Nadal.

Once we saw that, we were hooked and discovered that capybaras are the largest extant rodent in the world and inhabit mostly the savannas and dense forests. They’ll usually be found skulking around the water.

So gather round and enjoy this week’s offering:
