The capybara is the world’s largest rodent. A semi aquatic mammal. It came to South America 40 million years ago. It was relatively small then because there were a small amount of predators so unlike most rodents it was able to grow to become its size nowadays being 3.2 to 4.2 feet long and being 1.6 feet tall. In the future it will be more aquatic then using the water to cool down. With global warming it would have to be more aquatic in order to stay cool. Being so hot it would have to be in there most of the time iis diet being relatively unchanged eating aquatic plants although they also eat melons and squash when those plants dry up. That is how the capybara will evolve.
