HOUSTON – A Texas family has an usual 120-pound pet rodent.

Gari is a capybara and he lives with a family in Buda, Texas.            

The Dallas Morning News featured photos of Gari.

The family said Gari loves to swim, clown around and play in the mud.

Gari can be demanding and loves to eat at all hours, the family said.

Capybaras are the largest rodents in the world. They are semi-aquatic and come from South America.
