The Louisville Zoo has some new residents. They are a 1 ½-year-old male maned wolf named Rocko and four male meerkats named Sheldon, Leonard, Howard and Rajesh, for characters on the CBS hit show "The Big Bang Theory."
The meerkats are from the Gladys Porter Zoo in south Texas and join a female meerkat, named Penny for another character in "The Big Bang Theory."
All five animals recently cleared the mandatory 30-day quarantine for new animals and made their debut at the Louisville Zoo.
