Year 6 - capybara

 The friendliest animal in the world! Year 6 have been named after this unusual creature; an impressive semi-aquatic mammal which is found throughout much of northern and central South America. The animal with this happy reputation is the capybara; it is  closely related to guinea pigs and is the largest rodent in the world. They  love nothing more than wading through swamps and hiding submerged in the water to avoid their predators and their webbed feet help them manoeuvre in water and wander across muddy ground. Their facial features are located towards the top of their large heads, allowing them to see and breathe while swimming.(which they are very good at). Capybara are capable of staying submerged for up to 5 minutes and can press their ears against their heads to keep water out. They are extremely social animals and will happily mix with a variety of other animals – they have even been known to sit peacefully next to a crocodile!
