My favorite animal is the capybara, and Gary Peare knows it, so he sent me the following story about a capybara that was spotted by Nick Kamp, a wastewater operator at a sewage treatment plant in California.

It locked eyes with Kamp before submerging into the wastewater.
"You could see just bubbles that were coming up to the surface where it was swimming," he said.
