Sheila, the Capybara / Belfast Zoo

Belfast Zoo keepers are hearing the pitter patter of tiny webbed feet as parents, Charlie and Lola, have welcomed baby Sheila, the Capybara! Capybaras are found in South America and are, in fact, semi-aquatic, with webbed feet (hence their scientific name is hydrochoerus which means water hog). Capybaras can actually stay underwater for up to five minutes which allows them to hide from predators — via ZooBorns
