Capybara babies huddling around their mother after a Puma attack
Huddled around their mother, after the lunging attack by the puma, the capybaras are on full alert and ready to jump into the water at the first signs of danger, or at a signal from their mother. Two more are already in the water slightly further upstream. The cat is unlikely to return, and its chances are greatly diminished with such vigilant prey.
