…taking a bath. What, like you’ve never seen this before?
About a year and a half ago, we told you about…Capybara Hot Tubs. As if you need to ask where this is. Anyway- thanks to the tag-team of RN24 and Andrew Y., we learn that the annual Capybara Hot Springs at Izu Shaboten Park will reopen on the 20th of the month.
It’s just for the cold winter months, so it seems. Fruit gets tossed into the warm water, too. To, er, help the aroma.
PS- Maybe if you hit The Big J you could pick us up a stuffed Capy…IN A VENDING MACHINE.
From the “C.O. Can’t Even Fathom This” Department: According to the YT video, “the mother of the puppies was unable to care for them so JoeJoe watched over them until they were old enough to go to forever homes.”
So what we’re talking about is..A CAPYBARA PUPPEH SITTER. Say that out loud, then press the video button. #DED.
From Andrew Y., who is tasked with finding an officially licensed Maru plush figure. Don’t think it’s gonna happen.
JoeJoe The Cappy shows us how it’s DONE. Seems like he likes Cherry, too. Chomp Chomp DRIP Chomp Chomp DRIP DRIP.
Don’t worry about it- you’re not the only one. Take two Squirrel Monkehs and call us in the morning.
From Gene A.
Berlin Zoo has five new residents! A family of Bebeh Capys were born just a few weeks ago. Here they are along with Mom Lucia, checking out their enclosure for the first time, according to ZooBorns.
Is there anything cuter than a Bebeh Capybara? Can’t think of anything cuter offhand. Well, maybe a Quokka.
“Humph!” Major Side-Eye O’ Disapproval here.
“We’re right above them. Mabel 3 to Hustlers: Let’s break ’em up!*”
“OK, here’s my iTunes password. But DO NOT tell your friends young man, am I clear?”
“When Einstein applied his theory to gravitational fields, he derived the ‘curved space-time continuum’ which depicts the dimensions of space and time as a two-dimensional surface where massive objects create valleys and dips in the surface.” Mwah mwah mwah.
“OK, see you when you get back from Camp Sandbox.”
From May Li-K, who helpfully points out, “It’s a capybara (known as a Chigüiro in Colombia.) Oh.
*Bonus points if you can name the movie this is from.
