Meerkats at Closed London Zoo Enjoy a Little Festive Cheer with Engaging Easter Egg Hunt

As New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern recently noted, the Easter Bunny is an essential worker, which means this holiday hero is still making stops to drop off eggs, candy, and other goodies.

While most won’t expect their Easter treats until Sunday, April 12, the meerkats at the ZSL London Zoo got an early visit from the big bunny.

With a little help from the zoo’s keepers, the Easter Bunny was able to drop brightly-painted eggs around the zoo’s meerkat enclosure. Meerkats Frank, Dracula, Archie, Penelope, Timon, Aurora, and Meko then got search for the tasty treats, digging through sand and searching all-around their exhibit to find the snacks.

Fans of the meerkats and the ZSL London Zoo’s other animals are encouraged to visit the zoo’s website to learn more about how the zoo is handling the coronavirus pandemic and what the public can do to help.
