Meerkat pups go wild in ball pool at Edinburgh Zoo

6 June 2015 Last updated at 10:06 BST

Meerkat pups at Edinburgh Zoo have been having some serious summer fun in their ball pool.

But the little creatures aren't just fooling around - they're actually taking part in a game to find their dinner.

Hidden within the meerkat's pool are little insects, or grubs, that the animals love to eat.

The pups need to search amongst the balls for the grubs; in the wild they'd forage just like this, under rocks and in soil, to find food.
