Adopt Babushka the meerkat

By adopting Babushka, you are helping us to care for her here at Bristol Zoo and also to support our conservation work across the globe.


Meerkats are highly social animals, native to southern Africa. They live in large, tight-knit groups called mobs or gangs, and they take turns to baby-sit for the young, hunt and sentry duty, for the benefit of the group as a whole.

Babushka receives five feeds a day; three meals consist of crickets and locusts, and the other two meals consist of pellets and vegetables. She loves to sunbathe and is a very playful member of the gang.

Slender-tailed meerkat are not currently endangered in the wild. They play an important role in maintaining ecological harmony in the desert; they aid pest control by eating insects and they also provide food for predators such as jackals and eagles.

  • one ticket to Bristol Zoo Gardens
