Animals at ZSL London Zoo have enjoyed Easter themed enrichment and their own egg hunts ahead of the celebrations this weekend.


Keepers prepared special treats for the gorilla troop and meerkat mob in the conservation zoo located in the heart of London.

Keepers painted papier mache eggs in bright colours, within which they hid tasty treats for meerkats Frank, Dracula, Penelope and Meko to find amongst the sandy rocks in their home.

Across the zoo the gorilla troop were treated to hanging veg filled Easter piñatas for Mjukuu, Effie, Alika and Gernot to eggsplore.

ZSL London Zoo’s Head Zookeeper Dan Simmonds said: “The gorillas loved tearing into their colourful Easter piñatas in search of snacks, but despite there being plenty to go round, the meerkats were eggstremely protective over their festive hoard – something that other families might find familiar this Sunday!”

Guests can visit the zoo for their own Easter adventure meeting over 400 species within the historic surrounds of the world's oldest scientific zoo.
