An animal that loves to be with its own kind ... but not only
This animal is friendly and sociable by nature, leads a relaxed lifestyle and loves being in the company of its fellows. In fact, capybaras can often be seen going out in groups of up to 40 or more and relaxing by the water, or in the water, for a very long time. In addition, capybaras love to talk to each other, and do so almost continuously throughout the day.

Symbiotic relationship
We often see birds resting on the head or back of capybaras; this happens because the birds pick up ticks and other annoying insects found in the capybaras' fur, cleaning it. It is what is called a 'symbiotic relationship'.

Cab !!!
Another reason for this friendship stems from the fact that capybaras are also known to offer transport services to other animals. It is not uncommon to see birds and monkeys jumping on the back of a capybara while looking for vegetation to eat.

Capybaras love to be stroked and love to cuddle each other. This species desires to receive and give affection, and has no problem doing so both with its own kind and with animals of other species.

All together
Capybaras are semi-aquatic animals, which means, fortunately for them, that they can enjoy the company of animals from both lands.
