Summary
Meerkats offers unique insight into the world of this endearing creature, and is the first title on the subject written by a professionally qualified nature conservationist. Includes remarkable sequences of images of meerkats mobbing together to take on predators such as jackals, eagles and poisonous snakes, along with many other interesting behaviours. Meerkats truly are mammalian masters of multi-tasking
