    Those Wild and Crazy Meerkats at the Wild Animal Park

    I took these shots at the San Diego Wild Animal Park, the lookout guy was on top of a mound while at the bottom his friends were huddling up together. I could just imagine the little lookout guy saying:

    "You guys down there keep trying to break the world's record for the biggest Meerkat Ball while I, Habusu, keep my out on this suspicious looking guy with the funny white lens"

    I just love #1 - can't look at these guys now without thinking about that silly advert on TV (for the non UK people there is a comparison site called comparethemarket.com which runs a series of adverts using the parody of comparethemeerkats.com -clever marketing people I guess

    Thanks Michael & George, yes these guys were just drawing a big crowd and people were just laughing hysterically while the Meerkats seemed to be putting on a show.

    Thanks, I visited the comparethemeerkats.com and it's hilarious, I sure would love to earn a "purple paw

    Doing some internet research on this I found out that the meerkats do this for warmth in the everning right before they go into their burrows underground fot the night. This shot was taken around 5PM as I was leaving the park on a failry cold day by SoCal standards.
