Staff at Dudley Zoo are celebrating the arrival of a newborn baby meerkat.
Visitors to the zoo were delighted when the tiny pup - who is so young its eyes and ears are not yet open - ventured out with its mother to enjoy the sunshine.
The pup was protected by its mother and other females in the mob, but visitors were still able to catch a glimpse as its mother ushered it outside.
Meerkats do not normally leave their underground dens until they are at least a month old, when they are bigger and have fur.
