INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Indianapolis Zoo is ready for the Final Four — and so are its residents.

Officials at the zoo shared video this week taken from inside their meerkat habitat.

A basketball hoop has been set up in their space, and there’s no denying the little guys love it.

In the video, the meerkats are seen hanging off the hoop as spectators look on with smiles.

The zoo has other Final Four activities planned for the weekend, including a basketball-themed scavenger hunt with prizes from Coca-Cola. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
