Essentially, that they do not eat mikan or yuzu, as they do not like citrus fruit. The fruit are there to mix with the water as it is believed to be good for the skin. Sorry they don’t look at you. They have webbed feet. Ah, one is posing with a mikan on his head.

Hello!

Thank you! I came here to find why they weren’t just eating the fruit.

Everyone knows that you have to marinate the meat before grilling.

Mmm… capybara sushi… will have to do some research (in the whale sense) on that.

Capybaras are supremely chill animals. They are friends to all living things.

I much prefer Capybara to Pokemon. I don’t want a Pikachu in the bath.

Capybaras also go great with ice cream.

Don’t tempt me. There’s a special place in my stomach for bashimi/basashi with cold Japanese beer, and of all the foods I expected to fight my children for, raw horse wasn’t one of them. I still don’t get my fair share…

It hadn’t occurred to me until now, but capybaras look delicious.

We’ve got some capybaras living at Toronto’s High Park zoo - and a couple of them escaped a few years back; when they were finally caught and returned one of them was pregnant. The three kids were named Alex, Geddy and Neil - after the band members of Rush. They are all a lot more chill than Rush.

And I’m pretty sure they hate Nickleback.

Would love to try it. Some of the variants look like carpaccio. Unfortunately I don’t think there is a restaurant in a 100km radius that serves it.

and a beak for eating honey.

It’s amazing that they managed to have so many chupacabras in one place. They’re really hard to find outside of Latin America, and they usually run off and disappear after killing goats and small farm animals. These are unusually fat and docile. Probably from being over fed. Chupacabras are usually quite thin and mangy looking… Wait, what? Oh. Never mind.

Is it a bath or the start of a stew?

They have reason to be: the ones that maintain neutral-good alignment are able to summon a group of 5d6 guinea pigs under their control once per day(if they’ve had the opportunity to prepare spells that day). A bit of a novelty as divine spellcasting goes; but has its uses.
