[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I thought this was a Capybara but I was totally wrong. I think this is a muskrat, in this photo you cannot see but this animal had a tail and the capybara doesn't have one.
Also another important thing is that the muskrats are native to North America and I found this at Hermann Park in Houston, Texas.
This is a like a big rat, but the genus is Ondatra and not Rattus so it is not a rat.

UPDATE: This is not a muskrat, this is a Coypu!
