Meerkats, Monkeys and Lions Open Holiday Treats at London Zoo

Animals at London Zoo kicked off the holiday season on November 30 with unique advent calendars filled with treats, footage shows.

While a trail of cinnamon and nutmeg led Asiatic lions Arya and Bhanu to their calendar full of “meaty treats,” the zoo’s Bolivian black-capped squirrel monkeys searched for pouches in the trees; meanwhile, meerkats Meko, Penelope, Dracula, and Frank discovered cricket snacks behind the 25 doors of their calendar.
