What? How about a small Japanese lesson today: this is “capybara:”
カピバラ
Can you pick it out of the words above? Do you need to know any more Japanese than that?

There is a link to the original article at the end, but just between us, the photos are all you need!

At Saitama Children’s Zoo in Higashi-Matsuyama City, Japan, the season of “capybara hot spring” has arrived. From November through late March, about 5 months, the capybaras can be observed soaking in their hot tub.

I’d include more text here, but while the translation from the Japanese is amusing, it is not terribly informative. It does, however, offer the incredible word “Nasudoubutsuoukoku.”

Look at this cute capybara stepping right up to the scale! They all do it just like this. Check out this article on weighing capybaras! http://gianthamster.com/2014/09/wesley-fiona-the-weighing/
