Meerkat caught in downfall

Animals & their (rather stylish) waterproofs

It seems barely conceivable that we could moan anymore about the weather - but in the world of meerkats, April showers is just another excuse to whip out your multi-coloured umbrella. This enterprising fellow took advantage of this week's downpours to flaunt his poseur skills at Chessington World of Adventures. And he's not alone in getting handy with an umbrella; from pigs to squirrels and beyond, a whole host of creatures are busy raiding their wardrobes for the animal equivalent of rainy day style saviours. So if you're feeling a little below the weather about this never-ending spout of rain, scroll down for some April cheer - courtesy of the animal kingdom...
