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?
