The Rosamond Gifford Zoo is welcoming four new baby meerkats!

The babies were born two weeks ago to first-time mom Pidge, who is 3-years-old.

The zoo says that due to the sensitive nature of meerkats and their intricate matriarchal social structure, keepers did not know the number of babies born until Monday.

Although the pups may spend time napping in their nest box, most of the time the new babies can be seen in the meerkat exhibit at the zoo in the Social Animals wing.
