This photo of Garibaldi Rous standing up to get a treat was taken by one of his many internet fans. A young woman named Mariia from Washington D.C. came to visit us one afternoon last week and Gari really put on a show.

Garibaldi Rous tries very hard to win the heart of Flopsy the Killer Cat but for some reason Flopsy is still afraid of him.

Dobbye Winnick of www.petcapybara.com is in Seattle, WA. That is the closest pet capybara that I know of to BC. 

Caplin Rous with a mustache in 2008. Best capybara ever.

This is Stinky, a capybara who lives in a zoo in Slovania. He’s very talented and can do Capybara Agility.

Garibaldi Rous likes to eat the green slime in the creek. (Actually, it is algae which is probably good for him.)

A few days ago it was 80 degrees and I took Gari for a walk down to the creek. As you can see, he had a blast.

Garibaldi Rous got a new harness. It’s just like his old one except that it’s black instead of purple. I think he looks quite dignified in it.

It was a beautiful day for a swim today! This is what Garibaldi Rous looked like when he got out of the pool.

Also, I wanted to send in our previous correspondence so you were caught up, as I know I am confused when I don't have message history right there to remind me what was said, but apparently it's too long to send :( Well thank you for taking the time and respond to me fully, I really appreciate that! (One of my questions was about why Gari's teeth are bad and you responded with vitamin D deficiency to jog your memory, which by the way I am extremely well versed in diet, especially rodents!)

Send me your email address so I can correspond with you more directly.

Hi, I sent you an ask a long time ago (about 5 months maybe) about capybara's because I was planning on getting one. I decided against buying a capybara since I could not justify buying an animal, and instead am going for my wildlife rehabilitation license, SO if a capy in need ever comes my way I can take care of it as well as any wildlife (besides birds because the us is weird about birds) although I plan to specialize in rodents minus squirrels since everyone takes in squirrels.
