Also called “capybara” in Portuguese, the cabiaï (or cabiai) is the largest rodent in the world today. This animal found in South American wetlands lives in water as well as on land. As an adult, it is more than 1m long and weighs more than 50kg. Some specimens almost reach a hundred kilograms! The cabiaï lives in groups and can therefore be regularly seen surrounded by cubs. In Brazil, it can mainly be seen in the Pantanal region.
