Viscacha mascots

Viscacha are a rabbit-sized rodent that are related to chinchillas and live in the desert areas of Chili and Argentina (southern part of South America). Now that I have chinchillas, I can see the similarities and I am rather fascinated with these rodents. While looking for YouTubes of them, I found this video of a half-dozen identical viscacha mascots.

and here are real "vizcacha" (note the different spelling) which I believe is just a different spelling for the same name but the name applies to several species so there is a chance the different spellings are for different species (but I doubt it)

and in a different language but great video
