CUTE: Meerkat Finds an Easter Egg Surprise

Looks like the Easter Bunny dropped by!

The meerkats at England's Blair Drummond Safari Park got a seasonal treat over the weekend when they discovered colorful ostrich and rhea eggs in the grass.

The hollow eggs were filled with a special treat – mealworms! That's code for yummy for meerkats, omnivores that love eating things like flies, spiders, beetle larvae and sometimes even mice.

No bunnies on that list of things to eat, though – the only role a rabbit played here was delivering a few special gifts!
