Attention!

Good morning everyone… Now that the grass are breaking because of the cold, a person can spot the meerkats a lot easier. Normally, one or more meerkats stand sentry while others are foraging or playing, to warn them of approaching dangers. When a predator is spotted, the meerkat performing as sentry gives a warning bark, and other members of the gang will run and hide in one of the many bolt holes they have spread across their territory. The sentry meerkat is the first to reappear from the burrow and search for predators, constantly barking to keep the others underground. If there is no threat, the sentry meerkat stops signaling and the others feel safe to emerge. Enjoy and see you tomorrow!

Buiten die vlakvark is die meerkatjies die mooiste wilde diere vir my.Gister se berig oor die ‘mating game’ laat my dink aan my kleindogter wat so graag ‘n katjie wil hê en ek vir haar sê sy moet wag tot September.So speel sy met die hond en ek hoor hoe sy vir hom sê: Boeta, êrens word my katjie nou gemaak!Groete
