Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

Caplin Rous, the world's most famous capybara, is an ambassador for giant rodents everywhere | L.A. Unleashed | Los Angeles Times: "It's one thing to get a goldfish because your daughter begs for one. It's quite another to end up with a 100-pound rodent who has more than 2,700 Twitter followers.

Caplin Rous is a capybara. Related to the guinea pig, the capybara is the largest species of rodent. Though they're native to South America, Caplin was born in Texas and lives in the town of Buda with Melanie Typaldos, who never expected this animal to take over her life quite the way he has."
