From October. I did a whole bunch of sketching in October.

Oh yes -- and these all come from various photos on the Net, which are easy enough to find if you search for "capybara" on Google. Next summer I'm going to bike to the zoo again and do a few live capybara studies. (I've already done a couple, but the capybaras were sleeping, so they look like furry logs in my sketches. Not very interesting.)

Anyway -- capybaras are cool-looking! They are the world's largest rodent (about the size of a small pig) and they spend a lot of their time in the water. Their feet are webbed and rubbery, and their eyes and nostrils are located on the top of their head so that they can breathe and look around while swimming.
