Stranger in Paradise

There's a capybara (or carpincho) living in Steinbeck country.

Hopefully only one.

I guess I need to stop saving my links until the end of the week. That is twice you have scooped me this week. ;)

Gotcha, Jake, and I'm chuckling mightily! I knew you would figure it out sooner or later. (Actually I check to see if you've already posted such links -- and if you haven;t I go for it.) Thanks for the chuckle and thanks again for saving those spreadsheets too.

Re: your capybara post, why "hopefully only one"?

Anon--packs of wild capybaras are NOT good for the economy. (They eat the kinds of crops grown in the Salinas Valley.)

I knew I shouldn't have let them go five years ago.
