He lives in Las Vegas and seems to have a pretty chill life.

If you’re like me, you’ve probably never heard of a capybara before today. As it turns out, it looks like a giant guinea pig mixed with a dog and is actually the largest rodent on the face of the earth.

Besides being huge, capybaras are some of the friendliest animals out there.

Using the words of the official capybara subreddit, they’re terminally chill. Who am I to argue with that?

Go forth and spend an hour or two staring at JoeJoe and his friends, relax for a bit, and thank me later.
