Agoutis Crack the Nut

The agouti is a rodent that lives in Central and South America, as well as the West Indies. It looks very similar to the guinea pig, although it's much larger. The agouti walks on its front feet that contains five toes, while its back feet only contains three. Amazingly enough, the agouti is the only animal that can crack through the outer shell of the Brazil nut.
