Babies of any kind are a great cause for celebration, but on January 7th, Sydney’s Taronga Zoo is celebrating their baby meerkats for a very special reason. This is the first time the zoo has welcomed baby meerkats in seven years.
These were the first babies for their parents, Nairobi and Maputo. The zoo has not yet revealed the sexes of the pups, but it is believed that one is a girl and the other a boy. With a bit of encouragement from their parents, the little meerkat pups are happily exploring their new home.
