This is one of my favorite photos of Garibaldi Rous. He was always so happy and so playful in the water. It is really sad that he’d never been swimming before I got him when he was 10 months old. Notice the way his nose has a little curl just above his nostrils. That is how capybaras close their nostrils when they are underwater.
This photo of Garibaldi Rous standing up to get a treat was taken by one of his many internet fans. A young woman named Mariia from Washington D.C. came to visit us one afternoon last week and Gari really put on a show.
