Originally from Madagascar but came on holiday to the jungle and never looked back after meeting Taffy. He is wild and energetic which can lead him into mischief, especially when he loses his glasses. With his long tail he loves to swing from one baobab tree to the next, showing off his acrobatic talents.
She is a little bit vain but has a playful side which Taffy and the others bring out. She loves fashionable items like her hat. She likes to decorate herself and her nest with her favourite things like flowers, fish and seaweed.
Taffy and cara grew up together. She is fun, a little shy, but friendly to everyone. Although capybara are semi aquatic, Cara doesn’t like the water. She is very clever, but can often be distracted by her favourite activity of jumping around in the mud in her bright yellow wellies that were a gift from Taffy.
