I've heard of some pretty odd pets, but a capybara?! That's a new one. Meet Caplin Rous, beloved — and big! — house pet. Check out a day in the life of the largest pet rodent in the world when you start clicking!
It's a Capybara
This species, native to South America  is the world's biggest living rodent.
Except this one lives as a pet in Buda, Texas!
In fact, he walks on a huge harness. Just like a huge dog.
And plays on slides just like a kid!
Is This a Snack?
Sometimes he roams free in the yard to sniff about.
Ahh, Just Right
Other times, he takes a dip in the pool.
The Camera's the Other Way
His owner, Melanie Typaldos, likes to join him, too.
Ready to race?
Whee, look at him go!
In his (indoor) free time, he tweets  and updates his Facebook fan page .
Once Upon a Time
He also enjoys reading pretending to read.
Fan Home Base
He's so popular on YouTube , too, that he sometimes takes shelter from it all.
Don't worry, he always has time for a photo with Melanie, though.
OK, No One Talk During Lost
He's a great conversation starter with company — the 100-pound pet snuggles up on an available lap.
When it's reward time, popsicles are number one!
More Treat Time
Nom nom nom.
Thanks for the snacks!
Rest Up For Tomorrow
