Operation Cheddi was the transport of our capybara “Cheddi” from Georgetown, Guyana to a zoo outside Houston, TX.
Cheddi was captured as a juvenile by a hunting party of the Macushi indigenous people crossing the Rewa river near the remote village of Rewa in southern Guyana in 2019. Being too small to eat, she was given to me while on a fishing trip.
Living in Guyana
While living in Guyana, Cheddi had a 500 gallon water tank with stairs to swim in and had grass delivered twice a week from the National Park.
