Compare the meerkats – a mother meerkat at a British wildlife park has given birth to identical triplets.
Yorkshire Wildlife Park in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, has announced the birth of three baby meerkats – two little girls and a boy.
The five-week-old babies have yet to be named, but are adjusting to life in the park’s meerkat enclosure with their parents Arthur and Anne.
Park director Cheryl Williams said: “The babies are already making themselves heard and have got the staff wrapped round their fingers.
“Visitors love the meerkats because they are so playful and it is wonderful to see these new additions to the happy family.”
The lovable trio are currently being weaned onto a diet of banana baby food, chopped egg, chopped mealworms, soaked cat biscuits and wet cat food.
Animal development manager Simon Marsh said: “They are so cute – and keep all the crowds entertained.”
The meerkats were born after parents Arthur and Anne were reunited in the park’s new meerkat enclosure after a separation of several months.
