Meet Our Meerkat Kits

MORE MISCHIEF IN THE MEERKAT MANSION.

It's a wild rumpus at Meerkat Mansion, with four new babies - "kits" - bringing the meerkat total to 21.

The babies were born September 26, 2014. Each one weighs only 90 grams - about as much as a 1/2-cup of M&M's!

Meerkats are very social and live together in families known as mobs. You won't see our three mobs on exhibit together, but you're sure to see meerkat fun as we rotate our gangs on display each day in Kids' Zone.

ADOPT A MEERKAT

Love meerkats? Animal adoptions are a great way to celebrate with family and friends all year long!
