While there are many children’s picture books about capybaras, there are few books and scientific articles available. Many of them are in Spanish or Portuguese. We will post documents and scientific articles here as we find them.  Additionally, we will provide a list of recommended reading and notable websites. If you know of any good ones, please write to us and let us know! We will also post our collection of photographs of capybara anatomy.
