The Capybara was one of the seven pets that were available in the Jungle Egg in Adopt Me!. It is classified as an uncommon pet and players had a 22.5% of hatching one from a Jungle Egg.
The Capybara was added to the game along with the other Jungle pets on July 5, 2019, after the Safari Egg. It is currently only obtainable through trading with other players or by hatching one from a Jungle Egg if they happen to still have one. Another uncommon pet from the Jungle Egg is the Black Panther.
