A paca, a small rodent.
I believe that picture (and definition) is of an Agouti. From what i understand a Lappe is a deer.
no it isn't. lappe is a rowland paca not a deer and the pic is of a lappe.
tis is very ulgyyyyyyyyyy
Tapir in Guyana (actually on one of Guyana's stamps), maybe labba but I'm not sure. If it is labba as Skip mentioned, it's very sweet meat.
That is NOT an agouti. Looks like a tapir to me.
it is a lappe..curry stewed one this weekend..umm umm good
Agouti does not have spots and looks more like a big rat, but they are in the same family as the Lappe
Scientific name-cuniculuspaca... that's where the name paca comes from
Heard from.the grapevine that the meat is firm, succulent.white and taste good when properly cooked
