The Capybaras of Saitama Children’s Zoo Enjoy the Hot Tub and Hot Springs on a Chilly Winter’s Day

The very many capybaras of the Saitama Children’s Zoo enjoy a sit in the hot tub and a shower under the hot springs on a chilly winter’s day in Higashi-Matsuyama, Japan. Capybaras are considered to be semi-aquatic and very social animals, making hot tub gatherings the ideal place for these wonderful giant rodents.
