London zoo animals enjoy annual Easter egg hunt

Black capped squirrel monkeys and meerkats rushed to extract treats hidden for them in easter eggs hanging from branches in their enclosures.

The primates were treated by zookeepers to the eggs in an Easter tradition, although no guests were there to see the animals enjoying their Easter gifts.

Zoos in the UK have been closed to visitors due to lockdown restrictions, but are currently scheduled to reopen on April 12, when many outdoor attractions are set to reopen.
