The animals spent time with their very own snowman and snow meerkat.

The sculptures were made by zookeeper Lucy Smith.

She said: “Meerkats are naturally inquisitive animals and love nothing better than investigating anything new in their enclosure.

“And with tasty carrots for noses and biscuits for buttons, their new snow friends are going down a storm with the group.”

To keep warm London Zoo’s mob of meerkats have had extra bedding and heat lamps during the cold snap.
