The High Park capybaras in Toronto became famous a few years back after they went walkabout. They were recaptured, of course, and have since settled down in domestic bliss.
Toronto has nasty winters with lots of snow, but their winter quarters sound pretty good. They tend to get frostbite so it’s important to provide activities out of the snow during the long winters.
This summertime video shows only their pool and a grassy area, but it’s a terrific pool, and many capybara exhibits have little or no grass. Judging by their antics, these guys are happy and healthy and love their pool!
