We have no idea why capybara's appear cute to us and rats horrify us to our core, both are rodents after all, but sure look, here we all are.
On last night's Planet Earth II on BBC1, there was one capybara in particular that caught people's eye. This dude was just hanging out by the river bank when suddenly he saw a brutal murder take place in front of his eyes, as a jaguar mercilessly killed a caiman alligator.

The internet couldn't help but be quite taken with our capybara friend;
