Capybara encounter – Taronga Zoo
Head to Taronga Zoo and get up close and personal with Pedro, Guillermo, Sanchez, Carlos and Rodney, five loveable and charismatic Capybara brothers, the world’s largest rodent and semi aquatic species
Did you know Capybaras can dive and stay underwater for up to five minutes at a time, or that although they can weigh up to 70kg, they can clock up to 35km/hr speeds? Bet you didn’t know they are coprophagic, which means they eat their own poo! Hear these fun facts and more from expert keepers while feeding them some of their favourite snacks.
