While we were away on our foggy holiday in north Norfolk we made a trip to Amazona Zoo in Cromer where I completely and utterly fell in love with the baby mara.

The Patagonian mara are funny little things. They seem like a sort of rabbit, sort of deer cross (wouldn’t want to think about that too much). They wander the zoo freely and the first time we visited I remember thinking they had escaped and looking around for someone to alert. As no one else seemed that bothered we just carried on.


Aren’t they gorgeous? They were attracting a lot of attention.

Also, please pop back tomorrow and say hello to my latest Behind The Book interviewee, Kirsten Hesketh. She’s recently had some amazing news I’m delighted to share.

  1. How amazing that the mara don’t escape! Can only assume they’re very territorial. I see what you mean about a rabbit / deer cross. Great detail in these images I can almost touch the fur tara.


  2. I love them! I’ve never heard of them or seen them before. They really do look like a cross between a rabbit and a deer. I’m a sucker for anything that looks like a rabbit (or a guinea pig!).
