Your morning adorable: Baby capybaras
These babies are capybaras, cousins of guinea pigs and chinchillas, and though they start out small (these babies are pictured at about a month old), they can grow to weigh 140 pounds.
The word capybara is derived from a Guarani word meaning master of the grasses, although its scientific name, hydrochaeris, is Greek for the much less impressive-sounding water hog.
Capybaras are semi-aquatic mammals that can be found in the wild in many areas of South America (although these are residents of Germany's Hannover Adventure Zoo).
