Born in January, four baby meekats, have been tempted out of their nest boxes by the recent warm weather.

Have spent most of their early days hidden from visitors, as the four siblings approach turning two months old they are venturing outside more and more, much to the delight of visitors.

Although proving very popular the zoo's new arrivals are yet to be named and the process is not as 'simples' as their TV counterparts may suggest.

Zoo keepers will have to wait a few more months before they are able determine the sex of the four babies, in the meantime though they are hoping to choose names in keeping with the meerkats native Southern African habitat, where they are found in abundance.
