Meerkats

Location: Western Plains Open-Range Zoo, Dubbo, N.S.W.








well away from the mob of meerkats sat this guy on sentinel duty.  Apparently, as he relinquishes his post, another will take his place.

The meerkats are cute critters, seeing them reminds me of the movie "The Lion King". Wonderful photos.

These guys are always great posers. One can stand there for hours taking pictures of them.

The second photo made me laugh! He looks like he got caught doing something he shouldn't. LOL! I like how they stand on their hind legs when looking around. Funny little animals!
