Watercolor Rodents #5: Agouti

As I mentioned in a previous post, for a long time I thought I had once seen a capybara, but turns out it was actually an agouti. Agoutis are similar, but actually quite smaller than the largest rodents. Also, they tend to live in forested areas (where I saw the one I had mistaken for a capybara), while capybaras tend to be found in open areas near bodies of water.

One thing they have in common: they are both adorable!
