Meerkats make me smile

The meerkats at the Lowry Park Zoo totally crack me up. They are so cute, and yet funny at the same time.

Meerkats are foragers, and I love their system of staying safe. Apparently, they forage as a group, with one meerkat serving as a sentry to watch for predators. They take turns with sentry duty: each “shift” is about an hour long!

Meerkats live in packs, which are also known as “mobs” or “clans.” Personally, I think these two look like two old men sitting on a front porch…

 Have you had the chance to see meerkats before (other than Timon in The Lion King, of course)? Aren’t they funny looking little guys?
