In the future, the capybaras' habitat will get drier and hotter which means their ears will get much bigger. With smaller ears it allows the capybara to keep in more body heat. However, with bigger ones, they aren’t able to keep in as much heat. Also, the water dependent capybara would need adaptations of a hump to carry water and skin that is more efficient at retaining moisture. The dryness of the savanna that they live in will cause capybaras to lose much of their moisture. This hump on their back, helps retain the moisture much better than without. Capybaras will change very much due to their climate change. Capybara won't change in color but very much in shape and form. Climate change also affects rainforests because trees that thrive in moist environments are dying and being replaced by species that are more adapted to dry conditions.
