    Quite possibly the cutest Tasmanian-born meerkat pups you will ever chance to see

    These meerkats look like a real handful... but aren't they so cute! Newborn pups delight zoo staff (Daily Mail)
    These adorable baby meerkats will never be short of love as they effectively have nine parents tending to their every need.

    The four pups have excited zoo staff watching their every move as they are the first Kalahari desert natives to be born in Tasmania.

    Their mother gave birth in a specially built burrow at Richmond's Zoodoo Wildlife Park two weeks ago.

    But since then the other eight adults in the colony have also been involved in the baby care and have been grabbing them by the scruff of the necks to take them outside for some sun.

    Zoodoo owner Trevor Cuttriss said: 'They're a very tight knit family - they all care for them.'
