These adorable meerkats might not be quite as sweet and innocent as they look - after developing a keen interest in human feet.

Their new enclosure in Jungle Kingdom at Longleat Safari & Adventure Park, is the first place in the UK where visitors can mingle with these cute critters.

Made famous by the Compare the Market adverts on TV they are delighted with the arrangement because they love nothing more than running amongst visitors.

They love playing around people's feet, larking about, making mischief and would probably sneak into visitors handbags if they were allowed.

It's not just the adult meerkats who have been attracted to wriggly toes though.
Among the more inquisitive meerkats are six babies which have recently been venturing into the walk-through enclosure for the first time. The meerkat babies may only be six weeks old but seem quite happy wandering amongst the visitors.
