Atascadero zoo welcomes three newborn animals

The Charles Paddock Zoo in Atascadero welcomed two new baby maras to the zoo over the weekend.

Maras are small rodents native to South America and have been on display at the zoo since 2011.

The births of the baby maras came as a surprise to zoo staff.

Zoo staff said the mother showed no signs of her pregnancy.

The newborns' genders are not known.

All of the zoo's maras, including the new babies, are on display.
