Agoutis are large brown rodents with short legs and a tiny tail. They have five toes on their front feet but only three on their back feet.
Agoutis are found in forests and grasslands in southern Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina.
They can live individually or in small groups. They have one or two babies at a time. They are covered in fur when born and can run around when only one hour old.
