Meerkats are born at a zoo in England. They hide under the ground at first. They come up some time later. They make their first steps. There are five of them.
Meerkats live in large groups. One group has around 30 animals. Meerkats live underground. They have long claws for digging.
The babies have no names yet. People don’t know which are boys and which are girls. Difficult words: hide (to be somewhere where others cannot see you), claw (animal’s big nail), dig (to move earth).
