Santa Claus visits Charles Paddock Zoo

Children aren't the only ones on Santa's list this year.

Animals at Charles Paddock Zoo in Atascadero got a visit from Saint Nick on Saturday.

He delivered special gifts to all of the animals at the zoo for their annual Holiday Magic event.

The presents were the zoo keepers' gifts to their animal friends.

"Well what we do is we make special presents- sometimes they involve food items or treats or toys- that the animals don't get on a regular basis," Zoo Director Alan Baker said.

They wrap the gifts up and present them to the animals in a fun way to make it entertaining for visitors.

The zoo provides challenges and new experiences for their animals every day, but Baker says this event is extra stimulating for the animals.
