This "mom" goes everywhere with her domesticated rodent. He even goes in the car with her!

Caplin Rous is a large, domesticated capybara that's extremely loved by his owner, Melanie Typaldos. She takes the rodent in the car with her, supervises his swimming activities and takes him to public places. She adopted the 100-pound "pet" from a breeder two and a half years ago. Though he looks like a giant, tail-less rat, Melanie says she "loves him to death," according to People Pets.

Wouldn't Caplin scare the crap out of your kids?

It sort of looks like a hairy pig than a giant rodent. Still..I would not have it as a pet. Its not meant to be tamed animal.

I’m 13 years old, and I would love it to death. I saw a program for the most wackiest animals and this was one of them! I swear I’d freaking love it to death!

I’m twenty and I think it would be awesome to see in person. My mind can’t process this being so large…(kinda reminds me of a guinea pig photoshop job to make it look huge, only it’s actually real…)
