Wild Capybara Befriends A Cat Who Loves To Rub His Belly
It's good to have friends - especially ones who know just how you like it.
Here's a wild capybara who found exactly that, and in a very friendly cat, no less. The odd pair was spotted recently near a university campus in Mato Grosso, Brazil, where a family of the large South American rodents calls home. While a group of students looked on, stunned, the basis of that unlikely friendship was revealed before their eyes:
Apparently the cat's a pro at giving belly rubs.
"I had never seen this interaction between cats and capybaras."
There's a first time for everything!
