Researchers are hoping to capture this mystery animal so they can positively identify it. Gwen Byrd says it's lived under her Flora Street home for two years and it shows no fear of humans. / provided by chardine'e hunt

Looks like a hairless, dwarfy, slightly malformed Capybara. Nothing too creepy though. I'd pick it up.

It looks like a hairless woodchuck, IMO. The shape of the head and face look very much like a woodchuck.

Libran1 beat me to the punch, but I really think that is what it is.

I agree with others here. It looks like a hairless groundhog/woodchuck. But man, I wouldn't pick it up, do you know how dangerous those things are?

That looks like a live Montauk Monster. Google it if your not familiar

On a side note, we've been discovering many, many new species lately, many. Have a look, www.google.com...

You are correct! It is a juvenile capybara. It looks to be hairless....maybe mange. It was probably someone's pet.

That's easy, it's a hairless nutria. Seriously, it's Not a special animal, it's basically a mix between a beaver and a big rat.
Peace!

It could be a hairless Nutria Rat. I don't know how to imbed pictures yet. So, here's an entire website dedicated to the little critters.

Nutria Rat

They were brought into the southern states (Louisiana, Florida, Alabama, ect) for fur trade. No fur market developed and now people eat them.

If its a Capybara they are well known for being very gentle and affectionate. Its for this reason that they have found their ways into so many suburban environments as pets. It appears this one was abandoned and left to fend for itself.
So yeah I'd pick it up.

Looks like a naked skunk... I've seen a hunter skin a skunk, so far outside the city it could was almost stereotypical, it looks similar.

If it would be any of the in the thread suggested Species, then is it not odd that the experts do not recognize it?
