This is capybara - the largest rodent in the world. Nice shot!

Tho the sound is quite close, here in Brasil, we call them capivaras

This is probably one of those things that changed in translation from the local language to English. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capybara

I changed the title to reflect the Latin name. This pleases everyone by pleasing no one!
