R.O.U.S. Fund

Caplin Rous “R.O.U.S.” stands for Rodents of Unusual Size, and the fund will be used to pay for the costs of necropsies, pathology, and laboratory tests for capybaras and other large rodents. These efforts are being undertaken to better understand more about the diseases that threaten the life and health of these creatures. The fund was established by Ms. Typaldos in memory of her special capybara,(pictured right).
