A baby capybara has found a new home after being rejected by its mother. A female of the species was born in December, and when it became clear that she wasn’t being cared for by her parents, she was placed in the care of the Cali Zoo, in Colombia. A keeper there will be her surrogate mom, helping to feed, bathe and play with the little capy. Capybaras are the world’s largest rodents; they can grow to over four feet long and can weigh as much as 170 pounds.
