RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) -

An animal family at the Metro Richmond Zoo recently expanded: a meerkat mom gave birth to three adorable pups!

On June 25, one of the meerkats gave birth to a litter of three pups. A few days ago, the little ones opened their eyes and came out of their den.

As a bonus, you don't even have to travel tot he zoo to see these curious youngsters.

"These pups are so cute, adorable and active, we decided to share them with the public on a web cam," said Jim Andelin of the Metro Richmond Zoo.
