Which Zoos have Capybaras?

It turns out that a lot of zoos have capybaras. Websites lie, google sends updates daily, and capybaras get transferred from one zoo to another at the drop of a hat. That’s where you enter the picture. Could you please help the Farm Manager keep this list up-to-date by dropping her a line? If you send photos, I’ll talk her into making a gallery. If she can keep this list current, we won’t hear from disgruntled customers about an erroneous listing. Face it, you get what you pay for.

Here’s the list:

  1. The Cincinnati Zoo does not have Capybaras as of 2017ish. They were moved out of an outdated habitat to make room for a new zone. They haven’t returned!


    • That’s disappointing. It’s also disappointing to see capybaras exhibited on dirt or concrete. Keep an eye on this and let us know if they magically reappear in a tropical paradise with lots of grass and swimming!
