Exotic Capybara Stars in TLC's "My Crazy Obsession" Season Finale

The capybara, one of the world’s largest rodent species, made a rare foray into the world of hot Internet searches after appearing on the finale of TLC's My Crazy Obsession.

The show highlighted the relationship between Melanie Typaldos and Gary, her 100-pound capybara, reported the Huffington Post. (Note: Although cute, these critters are not a normal household pet.)

Typaldos talked about her obsession with Gary: She spends about 80 percent of her time with him — and she even consulted with an animal medium to open up the lines of communication with the capybara.

As you'll see in this Huffington Post video, the show ended with the pair in bed, watching TV together.
