Baby meerkats wow zoo crowds

Cute baby meerkats meet their fans

It feels like spring is on the way, and lots of baby animals have been born at Bristol Zoo Gardens.

The new arrivals include two meerkats - who weighed just 30 grams at birth - the same as a small bag of crisps!

At just eight weeks old, they've only recently started getting out and about to explore their surroundings.

It's too early to tell if they're boys or girls at the moment, but all the adult meerkats are taking it in turns to look after them.
