Why Do Animals Like Capybaras So Much? (18+ Pics)

Why do other animals like capybaras so much? This was the question posed on Tumblr, so Bored Panda decided to do a little research.

The photo evidence was more than convincing. Every animal seems to like hanging out with this friendly creature that looks like a rat-pig hybrid. Even crocodiles!

The answer? It probably lies in the fact that capybaras are very social animals who often live in groups of 10-20 individuals. This lovable creature is the largest rodent in the world, growing to a size of up to 134cm and weighing up to 66kg. Native to South America, capybara’s are semi-aquatic mammals that prefer to live near bodies of water; in fact, they are excellent swimmers, can avoid predators by staying submerged for up to 5 minutes, and only mate in water.

What do you think? Do we have any panda-scientists among us?
