Ultimate Rule Of Cuteness #7 Noted!

OK, let’s get MATCHINGKS out of the way right up front- this photo begs for it. Now then, more importantly- RULE OF CUTENESS #7: “A thing, accompanied by a smaller version of that thing, is always cute.”

“Here’s just one of a series of staggeringly cute pix of a mama and bebeh capybara, newly posted on www.zooborns.com,” says Elizabeth W. “Legal disclaimer: These are not my pix. Or, sadly, my Capybaras. But I think they exemplify the Rule of Cute about having a Mini-Me.” Pix also discovered by Smedley.



  1. Yay capybaras! 😀

  2. No wonder people end up with huge Cappys as pets!! The bebeh Cappys are awesomely cute!! Ded.

  3. Both are so cute, especially the bebeh. I’d love to have one as a pet.

  5. This has to be one of my favourite rules 🙂

  6. Lordy they’re cute. Such blorpiness.

  7. Alice Shortcake says:

    They look so calm and sensible.

  8. grytlappar says:

    I loff capys’ slightly haughty look. 🙂

  9. Blue Footed Booby says:

    I think they look suspicious.

  10. Capybara bebehs don’t look like bebehs to me: they look like mini adults. Luffs them.

  11. @Birdcage – I’ve noticed that with bebeh giraffes too – it’s like they never have any juvenile features, they just arrive as fully-formed adults.

  12. They look like they ought to wear flat caps

    A small thing (animuhl) next to a bigger thing is qte rule? 🙂
