Or at least their park might have.

Altina Wildlife Parkis celebrating the arrival of one of the largest recorded litters of meerkats bred in captivity.

Six bouncing meerkat pups were born at Darlington Point’s parkthis week to “experienced mum” Timona and first-time dad Digger.

This wasn’t anything new for the park’s animal keepers though.

It’s the second litter of meerkats at Altina in less than a year.

Senior animal keeper Rebecca Surian said one of the biggest challenges was preventing the teenage meerkats from interfering with the new pups.Meerkat mothers generally only have three to four pups at a time.
