Camera Critters #82 / Meerkats at the Los Angeles Zoo














I went to the Los Angeles Zoo a few days ago. I think these little meerkats are my favorite critter! I could watch their antics for hours. They are quite the little sentinels! They are so quick to change their positions and they take their group responsibilities very seriously! What cute little critters they are!

Meerkats have to be one of my favorites too! You got some great shots! I almost expected to see three of them doing the see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil thing!!

Great photos. They are cute, and so social. And as you say, they seem to be very alert to their guarding responsibilities.

I love them....did you ever watch that show on tv last year called meerkat manor ?

at least I think that was the name of it.....OH that was the greatest show, where out in the wild we watched families that were all named and followed them day by day....week by week.....

Somebody's gotta keep a lookout. And if one of us is, why not four of us!

Cool! They look like doing a performance in unison! And thanks for the name, I have seen them, but do not know what they are.

I have seen these critters on TV or somewhere though I did know their names. They look cute when they are standing for keeping a lookout.
