Capybaras are Excellent Swimmers

Capybaras have webbed feet and it makes them excellent swimmers.

They can dive and hold their breath for five minutes at a time, and their ears fold back when they are underwater so they never have to worry about water getting stuck in their ears.


This diving capybara is also part of my latest Capybaras & Friends Colouring Book.
