Five baby meerkat pups were born at the Symbio Wildlife Park in Australia... and they are adorable! 

The tiny animals are just about 5 weeks old and are beginning to venture out of their nest box and explore their enclosure. 

The little ones are starting to mimic their parents, Aya and Penfold, by standing on their hind legs, and are already eating solid foods. 

The genders of the meerkats are yet to be determined.
