The Capybara and The Aquabara As of right now, the capybara lives on both land, and in water. They are good swimmers which can work in their favor as they forage for food. Because they split their time between land and water, they have partially webbed feet for traveling throughout water and they have thick furry hair that helps keep them warm and camouflaged. In one-thousand years as the sea level rises, I believe the capybara will live in completely submerged water and have longer legs and complete webbed feet to help them swim. They will also have a flat tail and shorter hair to help with speed and friction in the water. As the water rises capybaras will have to dive deeper for food and having a flat tail, complete webbed feet, shorter hair, and longer legs will help them tremendously.
