MELBOURNE, Fla. — Brevard Zoo recently welcomed two new Rock Hyrax Pups to their community.

Their names are Turnip and Raddish, but the public won't be able to see them at the zoo. The pups are considered ambassador animals and are used for educational programs.

The Zoo says they are the closest living relatives to elephants and manatees.
