Wildlife

Today we went to a neighbor who just bought capybaras and wallabies. What are these you ask?
Well, according to Google (I didn't really know anything about them either) capybaras are the largest rodents on earth. Basically supersized guinea pigs.
These are babies. They will get a lot bigger. Aren't they adorable?
The capybara is native to South America where it lives in savannas and forests close to the water. They weigh over a 100 lbs and are about the size of a Rottweiler! I adore them.

Wallabies are miniature kangaroos.

They are originally from Australia where they live in the forest. Wallabies eat grass, leaves, and vegetables. God I really want one!
 
We also saw a pair of interesting Australian geese:
 
This is our own flock of baby geese:
 
And here is a bee hard at work:

I have to add one more: our Black bear hamster escaped and is hiding under the bookshelf. And I'm a bit scared of him. Oh dear...

Have a lovely Sunday!
