Mutley looks at some Meerkats!

2 Mar

Cos I’m the top dog at Meerkat Works, I’m always on the look out for all things meerkat-related.

So I was absolutely over the moon when my mate Paul Sheffield from They Create sent me this lovely snap of some rather alien-looking desert critters on his iphone (very fancy!).

Who doesn’t love meerkats, after all? I can feel some meerkat facts coming on…

Meerkats can collectively be referred to as a “mob”, “gang” or “clan” (sounds threatening)!

Meerkats can dig their own body weight in dirt in only a few seconds!

Meerkats are immune to the poison of scorpions and snakes!

“Meerkat” means “lake or marsh cat” in Afrikaans!

Meerkats are very social animals, living in groups of up to 20 or 30!

Gotta love those meerkats! If anybody else knows any meerkat facts, let me know!
