Five baby meerkat  pups were just born at the Symbio Wildlife Park in Australia. The tiny, adorable animals are just about five weeks old and can fit into the palms of zookeeper's hands. 

They're beginning to venture out of their nest and explore the enclosure.

Their spunky personalities are starting to show as they mimic their parents, Aya and Penfold, by standing on their hind legs. 

Their genders are yet to be determined.
