The pair are the first babies for Nairobi and Maputo, born on Jan. 7 and they have started exploring their world this week.

Zoo officials are not sure if they are male or female, but believe one is a boy and one is a girl. They'll officially find out next week when they have their first vaccinations.

They haven't been named yet.

Meerkats are from southern Africa and are found in the Kalahari Desert.
