This week you’ll find me writing
about an animal each day
So here’s two Capybara
‘What’s that?’ I hear you say
The largest rodent in the world
and roughly four feet long
They’re related to the Cavie
and grunt or whistle for a song

And not so very long ago
I was honoured I’ll admit
to join some zoo staff for a day
and help them out a bit
Being there with Capybara
so graceful and so grand
Was a joy made even better
when I fed them both by hand
