A tiny orphaned meerkat rejected by her mother has been saved by doting zookeepers. Keepers at Chessington World of Adventures Resort in the UK are hand-rearing baby meerkat Lila - providing her with round-the-clock care. Three-week-old Lila weighs just 4oz and is being fed milk by the dedicated team of keepers every two hours. Soon she will be weaned and encouraged to eat solid foods before meeting some other fellow meerkats at the park.Solent News/Rex Features
