Capybaras For Sale

Capybaras are closely related to the guinea pig and they actually look a lot like them. The biggest difference, however, is that the capybara is much larger. In fact, they are the largest member of the rodent family and can grow as large as 100 pounds. They are native to South America and are a semi-aquatic mammal.

Capybaras are grazers and prefer a large, enclosed yard that is safe and has plenty of grass for them to nibble on. Like all rodents, capybaras have teeth that constantly grow so they need to chew on plant material to keep their teeth worn down. Capybaras are also semi-aquatic. They need to swim year round in warm water. Ideally, the capybara habitat should have a swimming area that is as large as possible to give the animal enough space to exercise.

What do Capybara Eat

Capybaras eat about eight pounds of food per day. Grazing on grass that hasn’t been treated with chemicals or fertilizers is a good way to reduce the cost of feeding a capybara, but it shouldn’t be the only food the animal eats. They should also eat fruit, leafy vegetables, hay, and corn. Commercial guinea pig food, in pellet form, can also be fed to a capybara, but it can be costly.

Enrichment for Capybara

Capybaras love companionship and interaction with humans. They can learn simple tricks and master games and toys. They need to chew on sticks or grass to prevent their teeth from growing too long. They also need swimming time. A large swimming pool provides them with exercise and mental stimulation.

Breeding Capybara

Capybara mate year round but there is a spike in mating behavior at the beginning of the rainy season. The gestation period is about 150 days and the females deliver litters of between two to eight babies. Within a few hours of birth, the newborns can stand and walk but they are not weaned until about three months of age. In the wild, capybaras live between eight and ten years. They live longer in captivity.

    capybaras are amazing, super smart, and very calm animals- a lot of people would love to have one, however capybaras *actually do need* a pool or water feature, plenty of good food, and one or more other capybaras for sociality needs… or they simply cannot live happily or as long. Please consider this before you get one :))

    The best...most lovable and affectionate animal you could ask for. However if you can't have more than 2 and/or can't provide the proper habitat they require, please don't bother.
