Jesus that farker's big. First picture is freaky.
 
2013-06-22 12:37:46 PM  
So many things wrong here.
The first being, sleeping with a giant rat, that sprays his feces? And the first pic; is that a plate of food she has sitting on her boobs?

A long shot, but I'm guessing Gary serves as much more than 'just a house pet'.

Capybaras are in the Guinea Pig family and has a similar body form.  IOW, imagine a hundred-pound guinea pig.

I actually had one of those when I was a kid. I hugged it, and pet it,  and squeezed it ......I named it George.

Dear England,

As long as you keep using the ridiculous "stone" measurement, you don't get to lecture us about not using the Metric system.

You do know why the system you guys insist on perpetuating is called Imperial, right?

No, they didn't.  At most they would declare it worthy as lenten fare, which isn't the same as declaring it a fish.  Meat restrictions are decided on by a conference of bishops:

Canon 1251 Abstinence from eating meat or another food according to the prescriptions of the conference of bishops is to be observed on Fridays throughout the year unless they are solemnities; abstinence and fast are to be observed on Ash Wednesday and on the Friday of the Passion and Death of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Bishop conferences are usually local to a country. The US has one, and Venezuela has one.

The fish story is a legend that was apparently repeated on the Discovery channel at some point.  That's not how it works.

From what I understand, they're fairly intelligent and can be trained to poop/pee in a box.

Since they're rodents, I'd be more concerned with whether they gnaw all your furniture to pieces.

For which one?
 
2013-06-22 06:11:28 PM  
Looks like a cool pet...but is that a chlorinated pool?
He's eating food underwater, possibly drinking it and constantly swimming in it.

My friends' 17-y-o son wants one of these; just sent him the link.  They have a huge yard, and the critter looks like it could hold its own against the area coyotes and raccoons.

More like a giant guinea pig.

Also, this is not without precedent.

They need somewhere to swim; "semi-aquatic".

Like I asked in my previous post, I would think chlorine may be bad on a daily basis.
