Staff at Exmoor Zoo had an extra surprise Christmas present when doing their rounds on Christmas morning - two new capybara pups! The two were event fittingly born in a stable!


Capybaras are basically large guinea pigs and have been delighting visitors with their antics over the Christmas period, the new pups joined another December arrival at the zoo, a caracal lynx kitten.
