 A capybara is a semi-aquatic mammal that is native to South America. It  is usually found living in  forested areas near rivers, lakes, swamps, ponds and marshes. Capybara has short head and broad body with reddish-brown fur upper body that turns yellowish-brown underneath. On average, an adult capybara can reach 130 centimeters in length and to about 65 kg in weight. Adult capybaras are tailless, have 20 teeth, and with slightly webbed feet. An herbivore, it feeds mainly on grasses, fruits, tree bark sand aquatic plants. An adult capybara can consume up 3.5 kg of grasses per day! Also, capybaras are excellent swimmers and can survive completely underwater for up to five minutes. If the need arises, it can sleep underwater, keeping its nose just at the waterline.

2. Cat

Our list would not be complete without the cat (Felis catus), also known as the domestic cat or house cat.  A small predatory and carnivorous mammal, cats normally weigh between 2.5 and 7 kilograms and average about 23–25 centimeters in height. Cats’ night vision is superior to humans and its sense of smell is about fourteen times as strong as a human’s. Cats have dozens of movable vibrissae (whiskers) over their body, especially their face that help them in navigating. 

3. Cuban Solenodon
