15 baby meerkats exploring the world for the first time

Baby animals are just the best. They’re tiny little things, just now getting a handle on opening their eyes, standing and walking around… and they’re ready to explore the world!

Of those Meerkats are some of the cutest. Part of the mongoose family, these small creatures weigh 1.6 pounds as adults, so the babies only weigh in at about 0.9 to 1.3 ounces. So cute!

Though they’re bred in a certain type of setting, they’re just like any other munchkin: They want to touch, smell and lick everything in their sight.  And we love it!
