It was a Beary Merry Christmas at the National Zoo in Canberra today!

Zookeepers gave some special gifts to the animals who’ve been good this year.

The animals chowed down on their favourite treats, with the meerkats enjoying mealworms and fly pupae, while the bears ate cockroaches and grapes.

They also got some new toys to keep them stimulated, like food puzzles.

“It’s something different that creates an enriching experience for the animals,” zookeeper Renee Osterloh said.

“It’s always a special time of year for the animals here, they have a great time!”
