Coming in at # 4 on my favorite little creatures in the woods series is the biggest Rodent of them all, the Capybara, they remind me of puppy dogs and, really do have good relationships with some people in south America. I have seen it on TV, they came into these guys tents and, started licking their faces to wake them up. Capybara's can get about 5 feet in length, they stand 2 feet high and, can weigh as much as 200 pounds, for food they eat plants, fruit and, tree bark, their worst enemies are the Jaguar and, Anaconda, in looks they kind of look like a Beaver. Some information verified at Wikipedia.

Apparently they are relatively common in the US too as pets.

@TRBRocks420 We saw some in Leipzig in the river. They have to cull them there sometimes. We also saw two in a lake in the Czech republic.

So sad that they are hunted in some countries. I am amazed about their teeth which keeps on growing. So staying away from them is best. But we can admire those beauties .

Yes very sad and, also they do have the ability to do damage, but I heard they are mostly really nice. I saw one licking a guys face lol.

So, they have tails, because they can be as long as 5 feet . And they are herbivores.

Yes, I am pretty sure they have tails, but can't remember right off hand and, yes they are herbivores.
