It's no secret that the city of Rio de Janeiro is ill-prepared for the Summer Olympics this week.
From human remains on its beaches, to contaminated water full of raw sewage, to sketchy police that kidnap travelers like something out of a Liam Neeson movie — the troubled country won't be the most glamorous host of the games in recent years.
And it looks like the city's olympic golf course is no exception, because the green is overrun with all kinds of wildlife!
Many of the world's top golfers have already tapped out of this year's games, but the competing athletes still have a lot to worry about on the course — including capybaras, mini crocodiles, monkeys, and boa constrictors!
According to reports, the Barra da Tijuca-located course that will host olympic golf next Thursday rests in an upscale neighborhood sitting on the edge of the Marapendi nature reserve.
The course was constructed last year despite protests from environmentalists who argued
At Schönbrunn Zoo in Austria, a pair of Capybaras (the world's largest rodent species) knocked some furry boots!
After six months hanging out inside their momma's belly, a healthy litter of three capybara pups was born on November 29th.
Congrats on the cutie pups!!
The little babies are so ridiculously cute we can barely even handle it.
Seriously, don't stare at that pic too long or else you might lose your mind!
Even though these little babes are only a few days old, they're not only able to follow their momma around their enclosure… they're able to swim!!
That's right, with help from their webbed toes, the pups have already taken a dip in their pool. So ahmayzing!
These guys are basically giant guinea pigs and that sounds like the best thing ever.
Dog sized guinea pigs?? Sign us up!!

The Capybara is the largest type of rodent in the world.
They're like dog sized hamsters!! They're also incredibly cuuuuute!!
Things got painfully adorbz when two baby capybaras were spotted chewing on the same piece of grass at a zoo. The video was uploaded earlier this month, but it's just now gaining viral traction.
OMG! They're totes doing a Lady and the Tramp impression!
Check out the video (above) to watch two cutie giant rodents share some grass. Awww! That's so stinkin' cute!
Time to pop the bubbly, Paignton Zoo Environmental Park!
A super cute baby Capybara was born at the UK zoo and good news, he's the largest rodent in the world!
May 12th marked a special day for the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo.
Four healthy Capybara babies were born on that date, and they are sooooooo cute!!!
More good news is that the new capybara litter nearly doubles the existing capybara population at the Cleveland zoo from only five capybaras to now nine capybaras!!!
If you're not sure what a capybara is - it's the largest rodent in the world, and can grow up to four and half feet long!!
We wish all rodents looked like these magnificent creatures!!
Check out more amazing pictures of these gorgeous animals (below) !!!

We've never been jealous of the Capybara before, but - hey - there's a first time for everything !
We enjoyed watching the largest rodents in the world take a hot bath in a wooden tub almost as much as they seemed to enjoy their rub-a-dub scrub!
Move over, Kevin Costner!
There are some new stars of Water World, and they're WAYYYY cuter! Ha!
Check out the fun by watching the video (above) !!!
Now these are some big ol' cuties!
A trio of capybara babes, the world's largest rodent, are all smiles and playful at the UK's Chester Zoo.
The little ones, Sakai, Byron and Kosh, were born on Oct 5 to mum Lily and dad Mordon.
Native to South America, the littles can grow up to five feet long and weigh over 130 pounds!
Imagine if bunnies were that big! LOLz! Congrats to the zoo on their capybara babies!
