Egged on: Meerkats take part in Easter egg hunt

While Easter might be different for many people on lockdown this year due to the coronavirus, meerkats at London Zoo still got to take part in their annual Easter egg hunt.

"Meerkats will sometimes come across eggs in the wild, which they see as a rare treat - with Easter approaching, and the mob missing the extra attention they'd usually get this time of year from our visitors, it's the perfect time to put on an egg hunt for them to enjoy," explained ZSL keeper Tom Lawrance in a press release issued by the zoo.

Like many places, the zoo is closed to visitors due to social distancing measures brought in to try and tackle the COVID-19 pandemic caused by the new coronavirus.

For dedicated zookeepers like Lawrance though, it's still business as usual at the zoo.
