Capybara babies born at Dartmoor Zoo

Everyone’s favourite furry family has grown! Give a warm welcome to our new capybara babies!

The five babies (four boys and one girl) were born on the 4th November and are settling in well and gaining confidence every day.

Our amazing keeper team have created a nursery for the family, which has a small paddling pool to help the babies get used to the water and a heated house.

Hoodoo, aged five, is a fantastic mum and continues to look after her young very well.

You can spot our adorable new arrivals in our South American paddock.
