    So first of all, this is a Capybara.

    Small animal food - Elbardo @Elbardo_ts Replying to @Tekking101 capybaras are called "carpinchos" in Argentina. here's one drinking argentine national drink called mate

    Capybaras are known for being cute, cuddly, and adorable, but they're also known for being the world's largest rodents. This makes them both absolutely awwdorable, and a bit of a force to be reckoned with. These rodents are also known as carpinchos in Argentina, what a cute name!

    And here is a video of the Capybara infestation:

    This entire video is honestly gold. The slow panning, the blooper style music. We feel a bit bad for the residents who have to deal with all the capybaras, but honestly it sounds like a really cute way to live. I mean who wouldn't want to spend all of their time with giant rodents?
