chiguiro machos?

well... the male of any animal (and sometimes even humans) is technically called macho, so ... i would think so.
(female: hembra)

plus, i googled and these two names seem to have the female form (chigira, carpincha) ...
you always have to check, cos some animal names don't have the 2 forms.

Wow!  Thanks for the info!  The guides where we were called them carpincho macho and carpincho hembra, but I do like carpincha and it makes sense, of course.  fI always forget "hembra" because we don't have a meaning for it in American English like we do "macho."  And I remember that because the American English meaning is funny when put with "carpincho."  Hopefully, now that I've seen it written I will remember.  Thanks!

Here in Brazil it's called capivara - pretty similar with english I guess... My father lives by the river and almost everyday he sees a capivara family eating the neighbors plants!  Cheesy

And that brooch is amazing! Looove it!

I'm so happy that there are other carpincho/capybara/chiguira/capivara fans here on craftster!  I had expected this post do go mostly un-commmented upon.  YEY!

Oh, yes! I have read that in Portuguese they are "capivara" and I've seen a Japanese toy called "kapibara san."

Thank you!

It's Speak!! Hehe... I love The Tick and the episode where he finds a capybara and thinks it is a dog. He names it Speak and keeps it as a pet, lol.

Love, love this! Wish I had one.

actually coming from latin the Fs became Hs in spanish (not always but mostly, i think[?]) and so fembra, well that's kinda funny too, actually.  in english, at least.

when i googled it, it seemed like the first things that came up were humans - people were using those feminine versions (the ones with the -a on there, not the "hembra" versions) as nicknames.  but i didn't investigate a lot.  so must be the correct names of the animals are like what the guides said.  i will ask dh about chigira or chigiro hembra.

Love it - my brother is obsessed with these furry critters - and he wants one for a pet - probably not the best idea, since he's already well on his way to a zoo - guniea pigs, bunnies, a dog, fish, and a couple of birds already....   Wait 'til I tell him they taste good, too!

Wow!  The etymology of words is so fun!  And then of course it's fun to see how one language can be so different depending on the culture that's speaking it.

They're a great animal, but maybe not the best & certainly not the easiest pet.  There is a capybara in the US who has it's (I don't know if it's male or female) own blog!  Something like gianthamster.  Anyway, it describes how it will seemingly randomly go through phases wherre it attacks and bites it's owner.  And those are some serious teeth for biting... like most (all?) rodents the teeth never stop growing.  OUCH!
