|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The meerkat is a small mammal and a member of the mongoose family. It inhabits all parts of the Kalahari Desert in Botswana and South Africa. A group of meerkats is called a "mob", "gang", or "clan". The clan can grow to be up to 20 meerkats at a time, or more. Meerkats have an average life span of 12-14 years.|

I like these animals and I like to see pictures with meerkat.
Your picture is well composed, with great detail and sharp. Thanks!
A far better than usual zoo picture Edgar. The colour, contrast and composition are excellent.

You have certainly captured these Meerkats doing what Meerkats do - it could have been taken in the Kalahari. Really nice grouping and an interesting composition, which works really well
How in the world did you get lucky enough to have them all looking at the same time. What a nice image and capture..redundancy built in:-) Very nice and good to see they are appearing well cared for. You are Blessed by Him in not only your words, but apparently your photographs.

Voilà de charmant mammifères qui semblent bien sur leur garde.
