Mealworm treats!

Our mob of meerkats have been munching on dried mealworms following an autumnal donation from a thoughtful visitor.

Keepers were given five bags of the dried treats by a well wisher, which have been scattered in the meerkat and yellow mongoose enclosures.

Senior Keeper, Sarah Evans, said: “We are very grateful for the donation and the meerkats were particularly appreciative! They usually get live mealworms, so the dried ones were a nice treat for them. They certainly didn’t last long and were gobbled up in seconds!”

DZG’s meerkats are fed daily with mealworms, chicks and fruit.
