Oh hey guys.

Posted on

Some furry spectators have been hanging around the Olympic golf course this week. Meet the capybara, the world's largest rodent.

These goofy guys live near the water in Central and South America (including Rio). They're like guinea pigs... but about two feet tall.

These goofy guys live near the water in Central and South America (including Rio). They're like guinea pigs... but about two feet tall.

And they seem to be as surprised as we are that golf is back in the Olympics after 112 years.

You know who else is excited golf is back in the #Olympics? THIS CAPYBARA.

Like, it's kind of awkward that no one told them this area was for ~athletes only~ this week.
