Meerkats at a wild animal park are being given treats from pumpkin-styled feeding buckets as part of a Halloween-themed enrichment programme.

The mammals have been delving into the bright-orange buckets and getting to grips with their favourite snacks, including crickets and mealworms, at Port Lympne Wild Animal Park near Hythe, Kent.
