Five capybara babies made their debut in south China

Five one-month-old capybara babies made their debut recently in a local aquarium located in Zhuhai City of south China's Guangdong Province.

The adorable capybara cubs followed their mother closely. They spent most of their time chewing the juicy elephant grass as their hay. These babies are living an important phase as the survival rate for newborn capybara is quite low, having to eat a lot to keep strong and healthy.

Despite being the biggest rodent in the world with scary sharp teeth, the creature has a quiet and mild temper with a low sense of alert. These differences in appearance and mood have won the capybara many fans on the internet.
