Now, whatever your reason is, taking a bath is imperative for hygiene reasons. And if you need motivation then watch this adorable video of a group of Capybaras enjoying a hot yuzu bath. After all, who doesn’t want to relax in a hot tub of water in this freezing weather?

Yuzu bath is a Japanese tradition where a fragrant fruit is put in the water to enhance the bathing experience. In the minute-long video, a bunch of capybaras can be seen standing in an enclosure that is filled with steaming hot water and has yuzus floating in it. According to News18, the capybaras are really enjoying themselves as fresh hot water pours into their Yuzu bath.

Many people didn’t know what a Capybara is and took wild guesses about the creatures in the hot bath:
