LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The Louisville Zoo is welcoming some new members!

Rocko, one-and-a-half, is a maned wolf from the National Zoo in Washington, D.C. He is currently the only maned wolf to call the zoo his home, but they hope to add a female soon.

Four new meerkats are also joining the family. The males, a father and his three babies, came from Galdys Porter Zoo in South Texas and are named after characters on the TV show ‘The Big Bang Theory.'

According to the Louisville Zoo, a group of meerkats is called a mob and these little guys are quite active.

The zoo will be closed Thanksgiving Day, but will reopen Friday. Visit soon to see the newest additions!
