Capybaras (Hydrochoerus hydrochaeris), like those featured here, are social animals typically living in groups of 20 to 30 in Panatanal in Brazil. Spanish settlers argued that because they spent so much time in the water, the church should classify them as fish so they could be eaten at Lent. While no longer considered endangered, they are a food source for many threatened species, such as jaguars, caimans, and various eagles. Hunting of capybaras for their meat, said to taste like pork, indirectly threatens other life.
