Curious Meerkats Give Their Brains a Workout With Custom-Made Contraptions at Werribee Zoo

Meerkats at a zoo in Victoria enjoyed a spot of brain training thanks to some cool contraptions designed to stimulate their minds, footage released on December 8 shows.

Video by Zoos Victoria captured Werribee Open Range Zoo’s resident meerkats testing out the specially made puzzles, which were developed by zookeepers to help keep the animals on their toes.

According to the zoo, the contraptions were built to incite “a flurry of foraging and mind-bending problem solving” for the curious meerkat mob. Credit: Zoos Victoria via Storyful
