      Hamilton Zoo had capybara until the early 90s I think, I know where their enclosure was (its now a picnic area), but I don't think I ever saw them.

      its possible that the Wellington Zoo ones went to Hamilton Zoo, but to tell the truth Hamilton Zoo had always been outside my radar and I never knew what sort of interesting animals they had there until Zoochat opened it up to me.
