This page should help you find a place to can see capybaras near you. The list contains zoos, aquaria, and petting zoos. Circumstances change, so please be sure to check with the facility before visiting. And make sure you mention that you are there to see the capybaras! Letting zookeepers know that you are interested will help capybaras get the recognition they deserve.

Please help us keep this list up-to-date. If you find one of these facilities no longer keeps capybaras, or you find a facility that has capys but is not on the list, let us know!
