What do meerkats dream of?

by Helen Hooker August. 03, 2012 8712 views

The college staff very kindly offered to run a guided tour of their animal management unit this afternoon for anyone who was interested and I was there like a shot! Being able to get in behind the fence meant I could get some lovely close ups of the meerkats and they were very curious about all the people peering over the wall at them. With the warm afternoon sunshine several of the meerkats were feeling sleepy and one of them was dozing, one paw gently twitching as he dreamt. I can??t help wondering what meerkats dream about ?? perhaps it??s insurance [comparethemeerkat.com]?? simples!

Meerkats are our favorite exhibit at the Memphis Zoo when we travel there. I'll have to make sure Brenda sees this post - it's precious! (and she LOVES meerkats)

These small animals are really magnificent! I do not know about what they can dream, but they always look on the defensive

Maybe they dream of a clean face?

Ok, I should be finishing my chores and what do I do? I cannot stop looking at those beautiful shots, Helen! I don´t don´t know which one yet, but one of them goes to my favs for sure!
(I don´t know what they dream of - I am dreaming of this terrible heat moves somewhere south where it belongs...)

You got some great shots... I've always thought they were fascinating creatures! I think they dream of the "great battle" as they are always "on guard"! 8^)
