Newborn Capybara: Move Over, Mom, I'll Be Taking Your Food

This baby capybara, the first capybara birth in ten years at the Houston Zoo, is a foodie. Only a few days after being born, he was eagerly snacking on solid foods, sampling every kind in his mom's food bowl. He even decided to get in the bowl, just to be first in line for new treats. 

The baby, named Mr. Pibb, is the son of mom Sunkist and dad Pop. It really doesn't get much cuter than that.

I must also note that, due to the fact that Mr. Pibb is the Coca-Cola Company's semi-copy of Dr. Pepper AND the Southern California Coca-Cola BOTTLING Company has a long-running contract to also bottle Dr. Pepper (long before it merged with 7-Up, so all the 7-Up brands - including Sunkist - are bottled by somebody else here), you rarely see any Mr. Pibb around L.A., so a lot of people here wouldn't get the soft drink connection, just that Mr. Pibb is a cute name. (I know way too much about corporate conglomerates)
