Olympic Golf Course Covered in Adorable Animals

The first Olympic golf tournament in 112 years will tee off at the Rio Olympics on Thursday The Rio course will also feature some new golf animals! There will be tiny monkeys and crocodiles (caiman or “jacaré”), cranes, owls and the world’s largest rodent, capybaras. I can’t wait for some of these adorable little hazards to come into play.
