Do you remember the time when we wrote about the capybara being considered a fish during Lent? If you don’t, don’t worry, we’ll refresh your memory. Capybara is a rodent that lives in South America, and Catholics once considered it a fish during Lent. Yes, you read that right, a fish. We’re not sure why they thought that, but it’s a thing. Since then, we’ve had quite a few searches for capybara and its price. Surprisingly, many people have asked how much capybara is as a pet. If you fall into this category, brace yourself because it’s a complicated answer. The price for a capybara is around $2,500, and you can legally own them in Texas, Pennsylvania, and New York, but not the five boroughs of New York City.
If you’re thinking about owning a capybara, there are a few things you should know. Firstly, they need a lot of space. They are large rodents, and they need a lot of room to roam around. Secondly, they require a lot of attention, and you need to have a lot of patience. Capybaras are not like dogs or cats, and they don’t interact with humans in the same way. Thirdly, they can be quite messy. Capybaras love water, and they often defecate in it. You’ll need to have a pool or a pond for them to swim in, and you’ll need to clean it regularly.
Now, if you’re in the “somewhat concerned” category, you may wonder if people are asking how much capybara costs as food. After all, we did mention that Catholics once considered it a fish. Well, we did some digging, and it turns out that capybara meat is not that easy to get. However, we did find a place online that sells nutria, which is a relative of capybara and supposedly tastes better. You can get it for $40 to $50, which is not bad considering the price of other exotic meats.
So there you have it, folks. You now know that capybara is a costly pet, and some people are still ordering the meat to this day. If you’re a good Catholic, you can order the meat to eat on a Friday during Lent. But if you’re not, we suggest you stick to regular meat. Who knows, maybe in a year, we’ll have a new story to tell you about another weird animal that people are eating during Lent. We’ll keep you posted.
In the meantime, let’s take a moment to appreciate the weird and wonderful world we live in. A world where Catholics once considered a rodent a fish, and where people pay $2,500 for a pet that defecates in water. It’s a strange world, but we love it.
