Inktober Day 14 – Tick

Getting up and doing things can sometimes be so hard. Especially if time is ticking.

Perfect picture for a Monday I would say.

Capybara teeth never stop growing

Like with other rodents, capybaras’ front teeth never stop growing. Their incisors are strong and chisel-like, making them highly effective at cutting through grass.
In order to keep their teeth to a reasonable length, they get worn down from all the eating they do.

This little capybara and many other fun facts you find in my colouring book.

Where are you flying to?

I’m currently dreaming about a Greek island. Not sure where this capybara is going to. But you can set the scene and add the background in my capybara colouring book, which you can find here.

More description about the book you can find also here.

Have a lovely day!

When Life Gives You Lemons… Eat them!

When I was a kid I used to love to eat lemon slices dipped in sugar. Thinking about it, even nowadays, lemons are an essential part in my kitchen. Sometime instead of tea I just drink hot lemon, and lemon is part of many dishes I cook. Pasta with salmon – lemon – cream sauce is one of my favourites.

The capybara went for a more direct approach.

Inktober Day 6 – Rodent

When life gives you lemons…

A capybara – biggest rodent in the world – taking a swim. These impressive semi-aquatic mammals are found throughout much of northern and central South America.
