The young of the world’s largest living rodent develop very quickly and soon start spending much of their time in the water. This is not only where capybaras go to wash; they also like to take naps and eat smaller meals with their belly and legs submerged – which provides them with safety in the wild.

You can visit the babies in the extension area over the bridge, where they live together with the nandus and alpaca pair Mara and Dörthe.
