Tomorrow is Caplin Day, so today you'll want to prepare to celebrate (get those blueberry yogurt bars into the freezer). Caplin Day is the birthdate of one of the United States' most famous pet capybaras. It may be safe to say that the late, beloved Caplin Rous is the best-known capybara ever, since his successor, Garibaldi "Gari" Rous, does not even have a day named for him yet.
Many of you have heard of the capybara, a native of South America and the world's largest rodent, which weighs roughly 100 pounds at maturity. The Phoenix Zoo has capybaras.
