This comment is from Ellen Wertheimer:

Referring to a fossil as the size of a capybara has a precision that referring to a wolf does not. As far as I know, there is only one species of capybara, while there are many types of wolf and they vary in size.

In any event, if the reference causes people to look up capybaras, it will enrich their knowledge of the natural world. As it happens, I knew what capybaras are, but for those who are unlucky and don't, checking out photos on line should prove delightful. Imagine a 100 pound guinea pig assembled by a committee. . . .
