The only rule is: no researching. Post your best guess in the comments. Reading other people’s answers before posting your own is optional but there will likely be at least one correct answer in there so you may want to post first and read second. I will post the answer in the comments later today.
Note: There are 3 individuals represented in these 2 photos but they are all the same kind of animal.

The dog says that we shall call them “Lunch”!

TY for your help!! I was/am WRONG!! LOL
The bottom pic looks like a capybara (my FAVORITE wild animal) but I’m not sure because of the top pic?!
I’ll go with capybara . . . lol
I would say paca, but I’m not sure the head shape is right.
Tapir? (See, playing My Zoo and My Zoo2 has it’s advantages…)
I don’t know. I’m stumped. All I can guess is, it looks like a caviomorph to me – that is, related to capybara – but not a capybara, not with that coat.
Striped North American Woodchuck..
I’m guessing capybara, and the ones at the top are immature (like a fawn has spots).
This is a pacarana. From the Wiki entry:
They are DARLING!
Unlike most folks, I like rodents. I had many as pets when I was young. They’re like minature dogs with little hands & most are very acrobatic & entertaining.
aww, I totally missed this till just now. But I didn’t know the answer anyway so I learned something.
love their whiffly noses <3
