14. Lets all just chill out…
There are lots of reasons for animals liking capybaras so much. One of the reasons is because of how chilled out the capybara is. They really don’t care what you do around or on them as long as it doesn’t hurt them or their kids. That’s why you’ll see monkeys and small mammals and sometimes even predators like crocodiles hanging out with them (as you can see a few slides later.)
But that’s not the only reason animals hang around capybaras…
Zoos like to put capybaras with other animals due to how friendly and calm the capybaras are, and so these other animals quickly become friends with the capybara. There is another reason, however, for animals liking capybaras……
12. Safety Drill!
Capybaras don’t just look after themselves, but also other animals around them. Whenever a predator is nearby, capybaras will give a warning to smaller animals so that they can run and hide. You can see how much these smaller animals appreciate this in the upcoming slides…

7. Another Reason!
Capybaras tend to do a lot of moving around, and some smaller animals climb on to them to get around. This results with capybaras basically becoming the Ubers of the animal kingdom. No wonder they are so popular. Keep reading to find out more about their popularity…
