Way to many animals are my favorite! I'd have to say Rabbit or Dogs though.

Nice topic for a thread!

I am tempted to view this as chat, so I shall move it there, but if someone can convince me otherwise, it can always be moved back.

Karen - the capybara is the world's largest rodent (the only rodent larger than a beaver) and, like the beaver, they are semi-aquatic. They can grow to 2' high & weigh 100lbs. If you happen to meet 1, speak to it in Spanish as they hail from S America.

Yeah, they certainly make hamsters look like wusses!  :D

I wouldn't say they're HUUUUUGE, though. A male European beaver (castor fiber) can top 75lbs. That's about 50% bigger than the North American beaver (castor canadensis) which rarely exceeds 45-50lbs; although they have been known to reach 60lbs.

Capybara are not overly aggressive; they're more likely to run away. But I wouldn't advise trying to walk into the middle of a wild herd in the mating season.   ;D

Id say those are some pretty good rippers. and them grinders ought to make chewing the catch up even more thorough after they have it!

How would you like to have that set of chompers sunk deep into your leg?
