How Capybaras Cross the Street

Our kindergarten teachers taught us to look both ways, stay together, and don't run when you cross a street. As you can see, these capybaras in Cuiabá, Brazil, remember that lesson. This is quite the opposite of what kangaroos do, which I've heard is looking both ways and then leaping into the street regardless of whether a car is coming or not. The city of Juína installed a special crossing lane for capybaras, since they tend to ignore zebra crossings. You see, they know they are not zebras. Capybaras actually use the crossing designed for them! Now if only we could get human children to be so calm and obedient. (via Boing Boing)
