Capybarata?

“Its common name is derived from Tupi ka’apiûara, a complex agglutination of kaá (leaf) + píi (slender) + ú (eat) + ara (a suffix for agent nouns), meaning “one who eats slender leaves”, or “grass-eater”.[4]

The video was taken in Cuiabá, capital of Mato Grosso, central Brazil. But the capybaras cross the roads and streets orderly in several cities. The mayor of the city of Juína even created an exclusive crosswalk for rodents to cross the road safely.

Just a reminder that capybaras may look like furry avatars of love and equanimity but they do have their kill-crazy bitey-bitey-bitey moments, as do we all.
