Gary the capybara is the world's largest pet rodent. Normally found in South America, this cute rodent has been adopted by a couple, Melanie Typaldos and Richard Loveman, living in Texas. Their owners got Gary from a breeder in Arkansas.
Gary enjoys swimming with his owners in the swimming pool. Due to the fact that capybaras spend a lot of time in the water, the couple had to build an above-ground pool.
Gary sleeps in his own bed and lives happily among the family's menagerie of animals, including a horse, rabbits, tortoises, dogs, and a cat.
