Meerkats have arrived at Finkley Down farm
Finkley down farm is a well-loved family attraction in Andover, Hampshire.
A brand-new enclosure has been built at Finkley, which is the home to 6 meerkats. The meerkats arrived at their new home at the farm at the beginning of the school summer holidays.
We are very excited to announce that our meerkat exhibit is now open and far more popular than we anticipated! Our mob of meerkats have settled in well and patrols the outdoor enclosure peering at anyone looking in at them. We have built the enclosure to encourage the meerkats natural behaviour, so that they have sand to dig in, pipes to hide in mimicking burrows, they even have logs and hills to sit on to keep look out, (also known as sentry duty)!
Caroline Snook, Livestock manager
The meerkats are just one of the summer attractions to be enjoyed at the farm this summer, along with summer entertainers each day of the week.
