for those of you who don't know why Germans call capivaras "water piggies"

@kondziu @behold3r @owl for the record the Tupi name, ka’apy-ûara, translates to "grass-eater", their other major life activity. (same origin as Brazilian Portuguese "capim", grass, bush).

grass-eating water piggy defines 80% of capivara nature, we just need a language to call them the chill animal
