Puxton Park, in Hewish, is celebrating the birth of four baby meerkats, who were unveiled to visitors yesterday (Wednesday).

The babies were born on March 8, and are continuing to thrive under the watchful eye of Puxton’s animal keeper, Katy Bent. She said: “Our meerkat, Mali, gave birth to four baby meerkats three weeks ago, and they have been building their strength and bonding with their mum inside the burrow.”

Two of the babies have been named Pippin and Bruno and the public are being invited to help name the others.
