Wikipedia article

This article is about an older version of DF.
A medium-sized semi-aquatic rodent. It lives in large herds and barks when alarmed.

The Capybara and its derivatives are currently the only animals in the game which you can hear at a distance in Adventure mode. These sounds will be described as whistling or barking.

If tamed in Fortress Mode, they require a pasture. Capybaras are amphibious, being able to swim even from birth.

In real life, the capybara can be found in South America and is the largest extant rodent in the world.
