LOOK: These cute, massive rodents are taking over the Rio Olympic golf course
I did not know what a capybara was until now, but I don't think Olympic golfers are going to like them
The Olympic golf course at Rio is new and looks great, but it does have a problem. Or it's a problem, I guess, if you're not fond of pig-like animals invading your golf courses.
Capybaras have taken over the course at Rio ahead of next week's men's Olympic golf competition, and they are crazy looking -- like the offspring of a rat, pig, gopher and baby hippo ... but with long hair. Can you imagine what some golfers will do the first time one of these babies snatches up a golf ball and runs off with it next week?
According to the animal expert in the video below, capybaras are plant-eaters and sometimes eat legumes.
It might not be the cutest animal at the Olympic Games, though. That will be the mico monkey, which is pictured later in the video. These animals should at least make this golf tournament more interesting.
