Seen running around on the roadside. It is a large rodent related to guinea pigs. They are very fast runners and can give hunting dogs quite a chase.
Gilma,here is an adult. https://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/17...
Gilma, this Agouti might be 1 or 2 yrs old,I did see a beautiful adult, eating cashews/ These are very shy and they can live up to 20 yrs! Besides Macaws,these are one of the few species that can crack open Brazil nuts without tools.
"It is a large rodent related to guinea pigs".....That is so interesting...The ones that come to my Garden are very large...And beautiful, their hair is shiny and reddish. Love those creatures.
