Flat out Sunday at meerkat manor..



The meerkats are a must visit whenever Aimee and I go to the Perth Zoo, they are sooo cute. Their behaviour goes from crazily digging and frolicking to flat out on their backs. The shot above must have been after said frolicking :) The Perth zoo has a successful Meerkat breeding program 'ensuring a future for the species in case numbers were to collapse in the wild'.. let's face it, endangered species are an everyday fact in this world we live in. While most snooze in the midday sun, there is always one looking out for imminent danger. Here's hoping you have a flat out not look out Sunday, take care and stay safe.. P.s. have a quick look here💙

  8. Hello Grace, stopped by for a visit :) The Meerkat is an interesting animal, thanks for sharing. I used to loathe zoos but I've realized in recent years that eventually the zoo will be where we find most of our 'wild' animals. It makes me incredibly sad.

  9. They are always so funny, the way they stand and look around. You caught them at the right time lying down very dramatic, such drama queens!!

  10. Clicking the first photo makes the gender of the meerkat is quite obvious.

  12. I worked for a small private zoo for a while. They had a little colony of meerkats in a very nice enclosure, one of my favorite things about the place. Loved the meerkats.

  20. I had to laugh when I saw this post. I just told someone that I was planning a post about meerkats but that I needed to find an old photo I could scan and use to help tell the story. I'm still looking. I LOVE meerkats and it's usually the first place I head when I visit a zoo. They are such charming little creatures.
