Capybara (Hydrochoerus hydrochaeris), Wasserschwein, Rio Napo Rainforest, Amazonia, Peru.
Amazing! One of my favorites as a kid, thanks to Bill Peet's book Capyboppy.
I wasn't so close to ask him about his name ;-)...
Great photo! Would this be the infamous "charlie" who used to hang around Napo Lodge? He apparently disappeared last year - not sure if he left to start a family or met an untimely end.
