Meerkats from the Kalahari Desert in Botswana

“Meerkat Manor” is a very popular British TV show seen on the Animal Planet Network.   The picture shows one of the resident meerkat families in the San Diego Zoo.  This family is located across the street from the koala exhibit near the elephants.   The other family lives in the children’s zoo.   The meerkats charming behavior always seems to draw a crowd.   The mother meerkat shown is taking care of 4 pups, oh so very cute.

  2. I watched some of the series. They’re lovely creatures (most of the time). These pups look very cute indeed.

  3. My kids loved Meerkat Manor. Interesting how under there cute exterior hides a rather vicious demeanor.
