You have a very unusual pet (12 Photos)

This capybara lives in Texas with Melanie Typaldos. His name is Caplin Rous (ROUS stands for Rodent of Unusual Size and is pronounced like “rose”). The semi-aquatic pet was named after the character of the movie “The Princess Bride”. Caplin Rous can do some tricks and walk on a leash.

    have guests over and not tell them about it… then lay tiny mouse traps all over the place and when they walk in the house tell them you have a small rodent problem and watch the hilarity that ensues

    That's a nutria rat. That's not a pet.

      It's not a nutria. It's a capybara. Larger than a nutria.

    sure, seems like a good pet, but wouldnt you get tired of his constant condescension. i mean, i’ve met hipsters less skeptical.
