Canon EOS 70D with Tamron 16-300mm lens @ 124mm and polarising filter, f5.6 1/30s ISO 200 RAW file.

These are the largest rodents in the world. Small family groups live in overlapping home ranges. Groups have one dominant male and all over males act as lookouts, warning the group if predators are near. Avoiding the heat of the day they feed on land and in water, swimming well with their slightly webbed feet. The location of their eyes, ears and nostrils allows them to see and breathe while their bodies are under water. By pressing their ears agains their heads, they can submerge completely for up to 5 minutes. All females in the group help to care for an nurse the young, which stay on land hidden in dense vegetation till they learn to swim
