Mr. and Mrs. Nutria Start Their Day

"Bye, honey! (kiss, kiss!) Have a great day (smooch!) foraging and digging up gardens! (yumm, smack!)"

"Will do, sweetie! (peck!) And make sure that Junior (slurp, lick!) finishes his burrowing homework! (umm-waah!)"

No tongues!

I’m getting chapped lips just watching them, Minette L.

Well, Hi-De-Ho There, Neighbor!

“Golly, pleased ta meet’cha, don’tcha know!  My name is Gunderson, Betty Gunderson, and this is my husband, Laars, and we just moved into the house on the corner, and by gosh, this is such a great neighborhood, it sure is, I was just telling Laars how lucky we are to be here with the great schools and shopping and being off the main road away from the noise and all, and so what do you do for a living, then?  Oh my goodness, well that’s just fascinating, say maybe you and the family wanna come over for dinner tonight, won’t be nothing fancy, just tuna hot dish and salad, and if you wanted to bring something, maybe you could bring over a little drawn butter and lemon, that would be just super, so we’ll see you at seven then?”

I'm just so pleased to eat -- er, MEET ya!

There goes the neighborhood, C. B.

Camouflage Is So Last Season

... and I even got tinted lenses to match, aren't they divine?

The Capybara Family Hits the Mall

"OK, kids, we’ve got a busy day planned.  From eight until eleven, we hit the department stores, and I’ll need you running interference for me at the sale tables.  Next, I need to stop by Just Hammers and get something for your dad.  At noon, we stop at the food court, and then you’re all getting your picture taken with Santa; try not to freak out like last year, Timmy.  All right, people — let’s move out!"

They're a lean, mean shopping MACHINE!

Try to stay out of their way, Brinke G.

Seriously, could one of you jiggle my head a little?

You’ve opened our eyes, Jaime G.
