Capybaras are the world’s largest rodents and are closely related to guinea pigs, although weigh between 35 – 65kg. They inhabit savannah and dense forest along the Amazon and are great swimmers, with the ability to remain underwater for up to five minutes.

For those wanting to enhance their visit, why not consider an animal encounter? With prices starting from £15 per person, animal encounters not only offer the chance to get up close and personal with some of the most rare and endangered animals on the planet, but also create memories that will last forever.
