Baby Meerkats born at Dartmoor Zoo!

We are very proud to announce that Xena, our meerkat mum in residence has given birth to 4 babies (called kits). They are now 3 weeks old and super cute!

Read the article in The Herald here.

Head Keeper Mike Downman said: 'Mum Xena is a very experienced mother, and on a weekend when we're all celebrating great mums it's good to give her a bit of recognition."

It was lovely to celebrate over the Mother's Day weekend, and of course they are still here, getting more and more adventurous every day!

You can get involved naming these gorgeous kits by putting suggestions on Facebook or Twitter.
