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.
Sergio Garcia and Bernd Wiesberger took some time out of practice to take pictures of a capybara.
And here are some animals patrolling the water hazards.
