Mother Capybara (Hydrochaeris hydrochaeris) with two babies lounges in the evening sunlight on a river bank in The Pantanal, Brazil.  Capybara are the largest rodents in the world.  Although this mother looks like she's asleep, her sense of hearing is superb, and they are adept at sensing approaching predators.
